The City of Santa Clarita (City) is inviting artists to submit artwork for consideration for our upcoming “Beauty of Stillness” juried exhibition which will be on view at the Old Town Newhall Library.

We are searching for works that encapsulate moments of pause, reflection, and serenity, offering viewers a journey into the spaces between motions.

Artists from the Los Angeles County and surrounding areas who are willing to hand-deliver their artwork may apply. Mailed artwork will NOT be accepted. This call is open to artists regardless of race, color, religion, natural origin, gender, age, military status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical or mental disabilities.

Per City policy, our contract states that artwork must be on display during the duration of the exhibit, and cannot be removed earlier. This is standard procedures and expectations within the arts industry for exhibits. We proudly offer multiple exhibits around the City for local and nonresidents to showcase their artwork free of charge, in return we ask that our City’s policies are respected. Early removal of artwork before the exhibit has ended will affect an artist’s ability to participate in future opportunities with the City of Santa Clarita’s art exhibits programs.
