The Crocker-Kingsley Exhibition was first juried in 1940, a tradition that continues to the present day. 2019 marks the 78th show and will be exhibited at Blue Line Arts. Past exhibitors have included many premier names in American and California art, including Robert Arneson, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Gregory Kondos, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, and Wayne Thiebaud. This year’s exhibition will include 60 works of art, all of which will be exhibited at Blue Line Arts in Roseville. Works will be juried, and the winners will receive cash awards of $100, $250, $500, $750, and $1000. Crocker Art Museum staff will then select five pieces from the show, which may or may not be award winners, for display at the museum following the exhibit at Blue Line Arts from March 3rd through May 5th, 2019.

 

Juror: David Pagel

David Pagel is an art critic who writes regularly for the Los Angeles Times. He is a professor of art theory and history in Claremont Graduate University’s Art Department. In addition to his teaching roles, Pagel is known as an art critic and art curator in circles much bigger than CGU’s own. His rich career with these roles has led to his CGU courses, which include Studio Art, Survey of Contemporary Art, and the Written Statement. He is an adjunct curator at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, NY. He was the recipient of an Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Contemporary Arts Criticism in 1990 and was a Macgeorge Fellow at the University of Melbourne in Australia in 2002. An avid cyclist, he is a five-time winner of the California Triple Crown.
