JUROR – Carla Laureen Bollinger

Carla Bollinger began painting in the 1980s exploring Chinese Brush ink-watercolor art.  This experience encouraged her to continue exploring this creative venture.  She paints in her home art loft and plein air in the Southern California landscape.  Her subjects range from landscapes, florals, abstract, cows, in acrylic, oil, watercolor, and mixed media.  She refers to her artwork as Illusionary Realism.  Her art is owned by individuals and corporations and is a member of the Westlake Village Art Guild.  She is a published author/poet with nature and historic places favorite themes.

Bollinger recognized that the Southern California natural world is threatened by development.  Her great concern for the “vanishing landscape” led her to join the Santa Susana Mountain Park Association almost twenty years ago, became a board member/newsletter editor/program chairperson and is a life member; she retired from the board when she moved from the SFV to Ventura County.  She is also a member of the Audubon Society, Sierra Club, National Park Conservation Association and is Director of the Public Land Alliance Network (PLAN).  She works, together with others, to protect the natural environment of Southern California for humans and wildlife.

Call Of The Wild is open to all artists and photographers worldwide.

Entries must be original and of the artist’s or photographer’s own execution.  DO NOT SUBMIT works which violate copyright laws.   Artwork created and completed under the direct supervision of an instructor is not eligible.  Please do not submit art which had been entered into any of the exhibits at the SFVACC. Once artwork is submitted, it may not be substituted or withdrawn by the artist.  All juried artwork must remain online and available for sale until the end of the exhibit. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER ART THAT HAS BEEN SHOWN AT ANY PREVIOUS SFVACC/SCORE EXHIBIT.

Artwork submissions are limited to six (6) original artworks per artist as .JPGs in the following media: drawing, mixed media, collage, printmaking, fiber art, photography, painting, digital art, sculpture, and assemblage.  All artwork images should be submitted unframed unless the artist feels that a particular style of mounting, matting or framing is crucial to proper artistic presentation.  This should be stated in the art’s description. 

All entries must be submitted as a high resolution, digital JPEG or JPG, maximum size 5MB, either cropped to remove background or on a black background without a mat.  Photos of the artwork should not be taken through glass or Plexiglas. Image quality is critical: Poor photography and presentation may affect acceptance by the juror. The digital image (JPG) must represent the submitted art.
