2021 National Exhibition Accepted Artist Instructions

Congratulations on being accepted into this year’s 30th National Exhibition to be held at California Center for the Arts, Escondido Museum, located in Escondido, California, from April 9 – May 16, 2021.

Prepare Your Pre-Paid Return Shipping Label

OPA requires that you include a pre-paid shipping label to cover the return shipment of your painting if it is not sold. And, please do not forget to insure your painting!

There are two ways to send your label:

1. Include a paid, printed return shipping label with a bar code and send it in with your painting. Be sure to use the yellow envelope to make it easy for the museum to see your label.

2. Email your pre-paid shipping label directly to California Center for the Arts, Escondido Museum at bmarino@escondido.org. Be sure when you email your label that you include your name in the subject line. Example: “John Michael Carter – Return Shipping Label”.
