Annual renewals will include the membership level plus the Artist Alliance fee. Membership in Artist Alliance provides opportunities for interaction, visibility, and growth for artists in the region.
Artist Alliance members are featured in an online registry that can be linked to their artist website. If you have an artist website, Instagram page, or Facebook page you would like added to the registry please contact Katie Dolgov at email@example.com with the URL.

ARTIST SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITIES
Artist Alliance members are invited to submit artwork created en plein air for A Breath of Fresh Air, an exhibition to take place at the Brooks Theater Gallery in downtown Oceanside.
Oceanside is one of only 14 designated California Cultural Districts and home to an eclectic, emerging art scene. OMA seeks to activate creativity in the community through partnerships with local organizations such as the historical Brooks Theatre in order to support our partners in celebrating art and creative expression.
Artwork will be juried and exhibition layout designed solely by Carol Naegele, Brooks Theater Gallery Curator.
This is a plein air exhibition; therefore, all artwork is to have been created outdoors on location. Artists are encouraged to submit work created during OMA’s Plein Air Festival, taking place July 24-30; however, this is not a requirement.
Submissions close: August 5, 2021
Acceptances Announced: August 18, 2021
Artist Reception: Friday, September 3 during First Friday Art Walk, 6:00-8:00pm.
