Two of the Gearbox Gallery artist members, Dennis Hanshew and Patricia Sonnino, are proud to have had their work selected for the Crocker-Kingsley 2021 Annual Exhibition.

The Crocker-Kingsley Exhibition was first juried in 1940, a tradition that continues to the present day. Over the past 80 years, this prestigious show has 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. In the past, this competition has solely featured California artists. However, starting in 2021, the exhibition will be open to submissions from all artists nationally. Works selected by this year’s juror, Carrie Lederer will be on display in all 4 galleries at Blue Line Arts. Cash awards will be presented for the following: 

1st place: $2,000 2nd place: $1,500 3rd place: $1,000 4th place: $750 5th place: $250

Crocker Art Museum staff will select five pieces from the show (which may or may not be award winners), for public display at the museum following the exhibit at Blue Line Arts from February 28th to May 9th, 2021.
