Ramona Library Call for Art

Quarterly Library Art Shows Call to Artists


The Ramona Library is partnering with 2Create Gallery and Ramona Art Guild (RAG) to provide juried art shows at the library that are both interesting and fun.  Our first show will be held the first quarter of 2017 (Jan/Feb/March) and will be wall art only.   We are excited to be providing quality art shows of Ramona and Julian artists.  Each quarter new work will be placed in the library and a Show Event will be held to introduce the Artists to the Community.  Each Quarter will have a Theme and from 10-15 Artists will be able to have one piece of art shown per quarter.  Our goal is to expand into not only 2-D art but 3-D as well which would possibly include up to 20 artists each quarter.
