Calling all Sonoma Valley artists for community art show

The Sonoma Plein Air Foundation is putting out an open call for local visual artists from the Sonoma Valley Community. “A Valley of Talent” will take place on April 13. This is not a plein air exhibit, so works in all styles and subject matter will be considered: abstract, figurative, still life, landscape.

There is no entry fee, and artists must live or work in the Sonoma Valley – from Sonoma through the Oakmont area. The deadline for submissions is March 23, and all artists will be notified by March 31. Complete entry details are on the website

Artists are invited to submit as many as three images of artwork they would like to exhibit in the media of painting, drawing, printmaking, collage or photography. Art for the exhibit will be selected by a panel of jurors from the Arts Guild, Sonoma Plein Air Foundation and local art instructors.

“A Valley of Talent” will be held at the Sonoma Community Center, Friday, April 13, with a reception from 5-8 p.m. This will coincide with the “Small But Grand” show, the annual middle and high school art exhibition at the Art Guild of Sonoma, with a reception from 5-7 p.m.

The Sonoma Plein Air Foundation raises funds through the Sonoma Plein Air Festival, held each September.
