Local artists have an opportunity for their work to be displayed in the Lompoc Public Library’s Grossman Gallery, 501 E. North Ave.

The library is calling for Central Coast artists to submit work samples and be considered as exhibitors. The works will be on display within the 2023 and 2024 calendar years.

In addition to the displays at the Grossman Gallery, a smaller continuation show will be eon view the following month at the Village Library in Vandenberg Village, 3755 Constellation Road.

To be considered for the exhibits, Central Coast artists must provide a representative body of work — at least six exhibit-ready pieces that will be evaluated for technique, expression and stylish achievement.

The assessment will be done by the Lompoc Public Library’s art advisory committee at its meeting, Thursday, Feb. 16. Artists should deliver the exhibit-ready (framed/finished) pieces to the Grossman Gallery 4-4:30 p.m. and pick them up around 6 p.m.

The art advisory committee will seek a balanced selection of media for exhibition. Each display is expected to last one to two months. Exhibits may include two-dimensional painting, photography, and mixed media, and must not protrude more than six inches from the wall when hung.

Artists must be a 18 years or older and from the Central Coast area. Possible exceptions to the age requirement would be at the committee’s discretion. One- and two-person shows are welcome.
