-A +A

The long-standing Crocker-Kingsley has moved to Blue Line Gallery. This year features a special award to feature award winners at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. Work will be selected by juror Michael Duncan, corresponding editor for Art in America.

The Kingsley Art Club's board of directors has announced a new partnership that includes both the Crocker Art Museum and Blue Line Gallery in Roseville for the biannual show. It will open Nov. 17 and run through Jan. 5. Award winners will be exhibited at the Crocker Art Museum from Feb. 3 through May 5.

The show was first juried in 1940, a tradition that continues to the present day. Past exhibitors have included many premier names in American and California art, including Robert Arneson, Kathryn Uhl Ball, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Gregory Kondos, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, Fritz Scholder and Wayne Thiebaud. This year will feature 75 works of art.
