submissions for high school artists seniors

Class of 2020

If you are or will be a Bay Area high school Senior graduating in the spring of 2020, you may be accepted in this group show exclusively for High School Artists. The show will be in MAY 2020, exact date T.B.D. Deadline for Submissions is April 5th 2020. Only ten artists will be selected from the 9 Bay Area counties. If accepted, you must be able to hand deliver your work before the show opens, and pick work up after the show closes in early July. You must have at least one parent or guardian with you if you want to attend the opening (even if you are 18 years old at the time.) Three small scholarships will be awarded for Best of Show, Best Painting, and Best sculpture.


Tell a parent or guardian you are submitting work for this show.

Send two photos of your work attached to the MAC Fine ARTS email:

In the email include:

  1.  Dimensions of your work and materials used. 
  2. The SF Bay Area High school you attend and the email address of one of the teachers at your school (this is for verification purposes only, we prefer email address with school district extensions, but will accept any valid address)
  3. Don't include pictures of yourself or any personal information.

We want to encourage young artist to work with any material or medium that inspires them, but this is a show about the creation of art objects. We're not accepting virtual or video art, for this show, unless it's an essential element of an art object. 

If you want to submit work as a painter (or any 2 dimensional "wall art") and as a 3d sculptor, you can submit four photos, two in each category.
