The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) and MOAH:CEDAR are thrilled to announce the 35th Annual All-Media Juried Art Exhibition. In this annual exhibition, artists of all ages and experience levels from around the Antelope Valley and the 5th Supervisorial District of Los Angeles County are welcomed to participate.
This year's exhibition will include two new categories: Community Coloring Book and Destination Lancaster Postcard. These new categories are designed to encourage artists to submit black and white line drawings, photographs and illustrations, which celebrate our vibrant community and the richness of the region. Submitted works to the Community Coloring Book and Destination Lancaster categories will be included in a MOAH produced coloring book and official Destination Lancaster postcards, respectively.
The exhibition will celebrate participating artists with a special closing reception on Saturday, June 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. The awards ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. where over $1,000 will be awarded to participants by the Lancaster Museum and Public Art Foundation and various small businesses, community organizations, public officials and other sponsors. The exhibition will run from Saturday, May 23 to Sunday, June 28. This year’s jurors include artists Nathaniel Ancheta and April Bey, who are joined by art historian and critic, Betty Ann Brown. Exhibition visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite artwork using #MOAHPeoplesChoice on Instagram. The artwork with the most votes during the exhibition’s run will receive a cash award to be announced at the special closing reception. As in previous years, the Lancaster Museum and Public Art Foundation will consider each of the Best of Exhibition winners for acquisition into the Museum of Art and History’s permanent collection.
