Artists who with winning ribbons who wish to show in the CAL Gallery must be current paid members of Conroe Art League.  Click here to join: https://conroeartleague.com/Members/Join

Artwork does not have to be framed for the CAL Spring 2021 Judged Show because it is online only.  However, we request you submit  width, height and depth (including any frame that you may choose to use) rounded up to whole inches so that CAL's Membership Chair can key in ribbon winners to the LSAG database.

Once the artwork entry has been entered into the show, the information cannot be changed or revised. No substitutions of artwork can be made. Refunds cannot be given.

FEES for Artist over the age of 18 - $15 per entry

FEES for School Students up to 18 years of age are waived if they use coupon code STUDENT18 at checkout. Do not use this code if you are not a school student under 18.

Maximum 3 pieces per artist per category.  An artist may enter multiple division/categories for different pieces of artwork. Maximum 20 pieces of artwork per artist may be entered in this show.

DIVISION:    Artist division is based on your life experience with creating art, NOT your LSAG experience or newness to an art league.  Those with college degrees in art should consider Semi-Professional or Professional as an appropriate division. 

An artist may have only one Division. Artists must enter all artwork in the same division for this show. Artist’s Division is listed on the member’s CAL profile for CAL members.  Artist’s Division is required by the LSAG database.   Previous participants in LSAG shows can go to http://lsag.wspub.com to verify their division. 

Each artist decides the Category in which to place his or her work. The show chair reserves the right to disqualify any artwork not entered in the appropriate Category. The following Division/Category combinations are allowed in the CAL Spring 2021 Judged Show. 

I-PROFESSIONAL DIVISION:  Artist’s choice for this designation  (Please note:  If you are a professional artist making a living at selling your art, you will need to register as a professional.  If you are promoting yourself as a professional elsewhere or on your website, please be sure you are competing in the professional division as well.)
