ABOUT SANCHEZ ART CENTER The mission of Sanchez Art Center is to create community through art. Sanchez Art Center was established in 1996 when artists and community members converted an old school into a multi-use arts complex that now includes 3 galleries, 18 art studios, an arts classroom, a ceramics lab, and the Mildred Owen Concert Hall. The Art Center fulfills its mission by presenting free exhibitions by established and emerging California artists, offering arts education and community engagement activities, and providing affordable studio rentals. AWARDS: 2 artists receive $250 plus an exhibition and 2 artists receive $250. ELIGIBILITY Open to all California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska artists age 18 and older.
