ABOUT SANCHEZ ART CENTER
The mission of Sanchez Art Center is to create community through art. Sanchez Art Center offers a comfortable and welcoming place for the community to come together, engage and be enriched by the arts, along with providing artists a number of opportunities to exhibit their work. Established in 1996 when artists and community members converted an old school into a multi-use complex, today the Pacifica Center for the Arts campus includes 3 galleries, studio space for over 30 visual artists, the Mary Harris Arts Education Room, and the Mildred Owen Concert Hall.

Sanchez Art Center, a 501(c)3 organization, provides free exhibitions and talks by emerging and established west coast artists, education and engagement designed to make art accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and affordable art studios for San Francisco Bay Area artists.

GALLERY PRESENTATION: IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL / GALLERY HOURS & SITTING
Sanchez Art Center is currently open to visitors, with health and safety protocols in place.  SAC Staff regularly monitors the current health situation and adjusts as needed to State and County guidelines.  After successfully doing so in 2021, we anticipate being able to continue to welcome art enthusiasts to the physical galleries; final determination though will be based on the health situation at the time of the exhibition.  To be prepared, and based on positive response in 2020 and 2021, SAC will also be presenting all works selected for the 2022 LCA in our online galleries (SanchezArtCenterVirtualGalleries.org). 

In person hours are Fri – Sat – Sun, 1-5pm, by appointment.  Each artist is encouraged to gallery sit from 1 to 3 pm or 3 to 5 pm for one day (Friday–Sunday) during the show.

SALES
Sales are encouraged. SAC retains a 30% commission on any works sold. Artists should include the 30% commission in the sales price. Sales tax will be administered by SAC.

SHIPPING & RETURN OF ACCEPTED ARTWORKS
Shipped work must arrive at SAC by 5 pm on Monday, March 28. Artists are responsible for all shipping costs. Shipped work must be sent with a prepaid return shipping label inside the package. We will re-use your packaging for returns, so make sure it is sturdy. We appreciate you checking that your shipping company, particularly for very large/heavy works, will pick up at Sanchez Art Center, to minimize SAC Staff needing to deliver packages to shippers.

LIABILITY
Sanchez Art Center carries $150,000 art insurance for damage or theft, subject to a deductible of $500, for which the Art Center will not be liable. The artist must agree to accept the terms and conditions of the policy and to release Sanchez Art Center, its Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, and agents; the Art Guild of Pacifica; and the City of Pacifica from any further liability.

ARTIST COMMITMENT
By submitting your work for consideration, you agree that the work will be available during the exhibition dates listed in this prospectus/call for entries, and that you will deliver and pick up your work on the dates specified. Alternate work may not be substituted for work selected by the juror. You also grant Sanchez Art Center permission to use images of accepted works for public relations, marketing, and archival purposes.
