CALL TO ARTISTS

ARTMIX allows the community to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork at affordable prices, simultaneously supporting local artists and benefiting the BMoA Fund, which supports all areas of the Bakersfield Museum of Art including preservation of the BMoA Permanent Collection, visiting exhibitions, and youth art education and outreach.

BMoA is now accepting digital submissions of original works of art to be offered for sale on a consignment basis during this event. We are looking for pieces at the $100, $200, and $400 price point. Artists who are current members of the Museum may register up to three pieces of original art. Artists who are not current members may register one piece of original art.  Artwork must be registered through the form below.

We hope you can be part of the fantastic opportunity ARTMIX provides to showcase local artists in our community.
