Art in Blue - Call For Entry

The Eccles Art Center is excited to announce a CALL FOR ARTISTS for a Chromatic Challenge Competition, "Art in Blue," to be showcased in the Carriage House Gallery. This exhibition will run throughout September 2024. We invite all Utah residents to participate, welcoming artworks across all categories that prominently feature the color blue.



  • “Art in Blue” is open to all artists who presently reside in the state of Utah.
  • Theme Requirement: All artwork must prominently feature the color blue as the primary or dominant color. Other colors may be used minimally for accent purposes only.
  • Artists may enter up to two pieces. Works consisting of multiple parts may be entered as a single work only if each of the parts cannot exist as a complete work by itself. Entries containing multiple parts must be priced as one piece.
  • Original works in any medium including paintings, original prints, monoprints, drawings, graphics, pottery, sculptures, and textiles, are eligible.
  • Size limitations: All entries (2D and 3D) cannot exceed 36" x 36" in size, including framing.
  • Entries must have been created within the last two years and must not have been previously exhibited in a juried exhibit sponsored by the Eccles Art Center
