We continue to use the online registration and artwork submission process, and will feature online gallery displays, online sales, online viewer feedback comments, and streaming awards announcements. For those choosing not to exhibit in person, we have added a separate online-only category. The in-person exhibit is limited to the first 350 submitted pieces, and overflow entries will be moved to the ONLINE-ONLY! category, so enter early!

All Gualala Arts member-submitted pieces are accepted for Art in the Redwoods. Art awards will total more than $5,000 this year, all provided by local sponsors. Award-winning artwork is selected by the Fine Art Exhibit judges, and our visitors and gallery viewers will be able to purchase your artwork directly from the online gallery or in person at Gualala Arts.
