Calling all emerging artists! If you are between the ages of 20-35 and have ties to California’s Central Valley, we’d love to see your work! We are seeking painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers, ceramicists, textile artists, and others who work in any medium to feature in a group show in the Spring of 2025. In the annual Valley Focus exhibition, we explore the work of our regional artists and their relationship to our communities.

Through this open call for entries, we expect to identify 10-15 artists and include their work in a group exhibition in our beautiful Ferrari Gallery. The exhibition will be on view from February 11 – May 17, 2025. Those selected will be in the early stages of their careers, and will be either:

  • from the Central Valley but now living elsewhere,
  • educated in the Central Valley (regardless of current residence location), or
  • currently residing in the Central Valley
