The Sandhill Crane Festival is soliciting original artwork for its art show. Art will be displayed as part of the 21st annual festival, which will be held from Nov. 3 to 5 at Hutchins Street Square.

There are two divisions, Fine Arts — which includes oil, watercolor, pastel, sculpture and other traditional art media — and Photography. Two subject categories will be displayed and judged in each division: Sandhill cranes in California, and California wildlife and their natural habitats.

Each artist may enter up to four pieces in the art show. Artists must agree to donate 30 percent of any art sales to the Sandhill Crane Festival.

Fine Art and Photography will be judged separately by invited judges, and winners will be announced at the Nov. 3 reception. Artists are encouraged to attend the reception.

Visitors to the exhibit will vote for their favorite during the show for a “People’s Choice Award” (announced the morning of Nov. 5) in each division. Cash prizes will range from $25 to $100.

All submitted art and photos depicting Sandhill cranes will be considered for the 2018 Sandhill Crane Festival’s promotional and publicity materials.

No limited edition prints, airbrush, crafts or computer-generated or computer-manipulated artwork will be considered. Camera add-on lenses, filters, and scopes are permitted.

There are no age restrictions. All artwork must be original and the property of the artist submitting the work. No substitutes for accepted artwork will be allowed.

Utmost care will be taken in the handling and security of submitted artwork, but the Lodi Sandhill Crane Association Board of Directors and associates cannot be held responsible for any damage to artwork submitted in the show. Insurance is the responsibility of each artist.

For the full call to artists, application form, and additional information about size, framing, labeling, safety requirements and art delivery and pick-up, email the Sandhill Crane Festival Art Show at scfestart@gmail.com.
