6th Juried Show
2020 Haggin National Art Exhibition – Biennial 

Stockton Art League sponsors a regional juried show every other September at the gallery location.  This juried show was created as a fundraiser in a year in which the Haggin National Show does not occur.  A Juried Show Committee is chosen amongst the members who wish to participate in the planning and process of this exhibit.  The entries for this show are processed digitally through an online site, Smarterentry.com. 

The Stockton Art League has an extensive history with the Haggin Museum.  In 2020, we will be coordinating our 61st exhibit at the Haggin Museum.   The show itself has changed in format and in scope during these years.  It was, at one time, an annual show accepting only regional artists.  In 2010, the Haggin made a decision to host the show every other year, and to also open it up to a national art exhibit, rather than just West Coast.  Online digital entries are accepted through Smarterentry.com and a solo juror is chosen by the Haggin committee group to choose the accepted pieces.  Once the accepted pieces are chosen, artists are alerted as to their status and works are brought in to the Haggin Museum on a designated date to be hung by the Haggin Curator staff.  The juror will attend at a convenient time to choose the cash award winners for the show.   On the 1st Thursday of the opening show month, both the Haggin Museum and Stockton Art League host a reception and awards ceremony for the participating artists and their guests. This exhibit remains open for a period of 2 months (dates TBA by Haggin Museum).

Fall Regional Juried Show – Biennial
Past Shows

In 2019, SAL is hosted its 6th Regional Juried show, with cash awards involving 9 media categories with entries at $25/per piece, up to 4 entries allowed.   After deadline entry date, one assigned juror will review the online entries to determine which pieces will be accepted into the show.  Usually a count of 100 is preferred based on space availability within the gallery location.  Those artists accepted into the show will be advised to bring their works in to gallery on a scheduled date.  The juror then reviews each piece in person to determine the cash prizes.  Prizes include Best of Show, 1st Prize, 2nd Prize, 3rd Prize plus Honorable Mentions (at juror’s discretion).  

A reception and awards ceremony is held the second Saturday of that September month to honor the artists and their participation.  The exhibit is on display the entire month of September.  Artists who sell any of their work during this show receive the usual 70% commission on sales, with 30% profit going to the gallery.
