• Parks District Issues Call for Entries

    Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District (MPRPD) welcomes entries for its “Wonders of the Carmel River” exhibition for the Winter through Spring 2015 Art Exhibit at the Garland Ranch Regional Park Visitor Center in Carmel Valley.  Artists are invited to submit artwork in any 2-dimensional medium for this community art exhibit, which runs from January 10, 2015 through June 25, 2015.   The application fee is $25 for the first entry and $5 for each additional entry.

    This is an open call opportunity for all artists and photographers working with 2-dimensional pieces depicting the wonders of the plant and wildlife in and on the water, as well as within the riparian corridor of the Carmel River. Selected art pieces will be showcased at the reception event scheduled for Saturday, January 10, 2015. The art exhibit runs through June 25, 2015.

    The riparian corridor of the Carmel River connects several MPRPD parks from the inland upper reaches at Cachagua Community Park heading downstream, reaching out and connecting the Kahn Ranch via the Hitchcock Creek tributary, and running westward through the de Dampierre Park. The river continues, reaching Garland Ranch Regional Park and Palo Corona Regional Park where you can view the Carmel Lagoon, where the river periodically spills into the Pacific Ocean.  The Garland Ranch Regional Park Visitor Center is a destination location that provides an opportunity to experience the Carmel River Watershed and a gateway to exploring your parks and open spaces.

    Art work must be ready to hang or display; works not ready to be displayed will not be included in show. Selected artists are encouraged to attend the reception event on January 10, 2015.  Entry deadline is November 26, 2014 via www.OnlineJuriedShows.com.  For questions on submitting your pieces please contact OnlineJuriedShows at help@OnlineJuriedShows.com or 949-287-8645.
