The Stockton Art League’s juried art competition returns to the Haggin Museum this year with more than 100 new works by long-standing local artists and newcomers from around the country.
The original competition was conceived in 1951 to recognize, promote and reward excellence in Northern California art and was expanded in 2006 to include all of California, in addition to Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. It has grown since then to include artists from throughout the United States.
Each year the entries and artists are selected across multiple disciplines including but not limited to:
Cash awards (awarded by Stockton Art League): Best of Show: $1,000, Second Place: $500, Third Place: $250, and additional cash merit/juror awards.
