Best 100  57th Annual Spring Show

Call to Artists

Lodi Community Art Center’s 57th Spring Art Annual is accepting entries. You will notice several changes this year. The show is at our gallery in Lodi’s charming old downtown, an area filled with wine tasting rooms, galleries, small shops, and restaurants. The show will be smaller, accommodating only the very best one hundred entries. The show will be longer, 16 days rather than a single weekend. While we will not be able to include photography this year, we look to having our 6th annual Photography Show in October to be the best ever!

We lost our long time venue at Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Winery, which has been an enormous friend to the show, as they are reconfiguring space and the barrel room was no longer available.
