ABOUT SANCHEZ ART CENTER
The mission of Sanchez Art Center is to create community through art. Sanchez Art Center (SAC) was established in 1996 when artists and community members converted an old school into a multi-use arts complex that now includes 3 galleries, 19 art studios, an arts classroom, and the Mildred Owen Concert Hall. Sanchez Art Center fulfills its mission by presenting free exhibitions by established and emerging California artists, offering arts education and community engagement activities, and providing affordable studio rentals.
2 Exhibition Awards ($250 plus an exhibition in 2018); 2 Merit Awards ($250)

Artwork shown in prior juried exhibitions at Sanchez Art Center is not eligible. Work must be able to fit through a standard-sized door (80” x 35”) and weigh less than 50 lbs. Framed 2D work must be wired (no sawtooth hangers). Alternative display methods may be used with the approval of Sanchez Art Center, and the artist must supply any special hardware. We reserve the right to refuse works not accurately represented by the digital images submitted.

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.
