The Crocker-Kingsley Exhibition was first juried in 1940, a tradition that continues to the present day. 2019 marks the 78th show and will be exhibited at Blue Line Arts. Past exhibitors have included many premier names in American and California art, including Robert Arneson, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Gregory Kondos, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, and Wayne Thiebaud. This year’s exhibition will include 60 works of art, all of which will be exhibited at Blue Line Arts in Roseville.

Works will be juried, and the winners will receive cash awards of $100, $250, $500, $750, and $1000. Crocker Art Museum staff will then select five pieces from the show, which may or may not be award winners, for display at the museum following the exhibit at Blue Line Arts from March 3rd through May 5th, 2019
