Call to Artists! Slice: A Juried Exhibit of Regional Art 2024


The Pence’s Slice exhibit, now in its 12th year, is open for submission by California artists working in any medium (except video or sound). This is an ‘open theme’ exhibit, displaying art that is conceptually thoughtful, technically skilled, and representative of contemporary trends in art. To apply, submit between 1- 3 digital images of work, with an artist statement and resume, at Fee is $30 for Pence Members, or $35 for Non-Pence Members, and the deadline online is May 13 by 9 PM PST. Monetary awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes are $400, $300, and $200, which will be awarded by the juror during the opening reception.


This year’s juror is Robert Ortbal, Professor of Sculpture at California State University, Sacramento. His work has been showcased in exhibitions and installations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York, as well as in Japan. His sculptural installations, based on the transformation of common domestic and industrial materials, appear to stretch our biological universe into different dimensions. Ortbal has also designed social practice works that question ideas of economic trade and civic space. He holds a B.A. in ceramics from San Francisco State University and an M.F.A. in ceramic sculpture from the University of California, Davis.
