The City of Encinitas Cultural Arts Division oversees three civic galleries: the Civic Center Gallery at City Hall (505 S. Vulcan Ave.), the Encinitas Library Gallery (540 Cornish Drive) and the Encinitas Community Center Gallery (1140 Oakcrest Park Drive), with 2D and 3D exhibits at all locations. The Cultural Arts Division is seeking artists to mount 50 exhibits in the city’s three art galleries in 2020. Exhibits are in place for two months.
City staff installs the exhibit with the artist and promotes the exhibit via print and social media: in the Encinitas Arts & Events Calendar and in the e-Newsletter that is sent to 22,000 subscribers each week. There is no gallery commission and the artist receives 100 percent of all art sales. Artists from Encinitas and San Diego County are welcome to exhibit. Applicants should e-mail up to six JPG high resolution images. More information and instructions are online at encinitasca.gov/visualart
