New Venue! Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th St, Livermore.

The show is supported in part by a grant from the City of Livermore Commission for the Arts.
The Spring Art Show is back on the calendar! It's taking place in late, late, LATE spring, also known as September. And it will be in a new location at the Bothwell Arts Center, on September 11 & 12. Although the show can no longer be at The Barn (LARPD converted that building into storage), it will still be the show you know and love. We will still have a sales room, judging, and awards. Due to a conflict with the Bankhead's Gala event Saturday night, we are moving the reception and presentation of awards to Sunday 2:30 - 4:00.
Deadline to enter is September 1
Show us what you've been creating this last year! There are two ways to submit your form ... download and mail in or (new!) online. Both are on the Late Spring Art Show page (click the image to the right, or on the link in the menu bar above.)
We need help!
We are moving quickly to get the show organized, and the new location means some rethinking of the setup. This year we would really appreciate volunteers to help us put up panels, conduct receiving of artwork, act as greeters to the public, hang artworks, and perform demonstrations. If you would like to help, or have any questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

September 13, 5-8pm at the Charles R Winery
Members will bring their dishes to share with each other. Wine, water, iced tea, and coffee will be provided. This event is being organized by LAA and PAL Hospitality Chairs, Georgia and Chandana.
The theme for this event is Artist to Artist. Georgia and Chandana are asking each artist to bring one of their own pieces of art to display. Since it has been many months (over a year!) since we have gotten together due to Covid we want this event to be one of sharing and getting reacquainted. It will be nice to see what our talented artists have been up to.

The Alameda County Arts Commission invites visual artists to submit an application to the new Alameda County Artist Registry , a prequalified list of artists that will be used for upcoming public art opportunities managed by the Alameda County Arts Commission. Public art opportunities will include outdoor and indoor projects with a range of budgets and will be appropriate for artists working in a variety of materials and styles. The Artist Registry will be primarily used to commission visual artists to create new artwork, however, there may be opportunities to purchase or license existing artwork.
Artists interested in being considered for public art opportunities with the Alameda County Arts Commission during the next 3-4 years should apply.
Although the Annual Alameda County Fair will be held in October of 2021, our Competitive Exhibits Competition will still be held over the summer virtually. If space allows, overall winners will be given the opportunity to be displayed at the Annual Fair in October.
