Artist Call Detail

32 DEGREES LATITUDE Inaugural Juried Art Exhibition
For International artists


This exhibition is devoted to the discovery and promotion of artists in the Conejo Valley region and beyond.


CMATO invites artists to submit works that considers landscapes in various contexts. Traditional and unconventional interpretations of landscapes  are encouraged.  

The museum is using its 32 degrees N.latitude location to signify its physical starting place for the inception of what is hoped to be an annual summer exhibition.

The goal of the Open Call program is to provide an avenue for artists to reach new audiences through the support of a curated museum exhibition. Collaborating with the Art Department Chairs from California Lutheran University, California State Channel Islands, Moorpark College, and Ventura College (jurors for the exhibition), it is envisioned that the region's unique aesthetic taste or point of view will emerge.

The exhibition will focus on three artists and will display up to five works each. To complement the exhibition, CMATO will create an online catalogue, including essays on the  artist and their works. The exhibition will also be presented on CMATO's website.


CMATO is a participatory museum  where visitor engagement is paramount and collaboration is key.  It's a place where people connect and experiences are shared.
