Call for Entries – Greater Los Angeles Master of Fine Art Exhibition (GLAMFA) 2018

The Fine Arts Roundtable (FAR), a collective of Cal State University Long Beach MFA and MA students, present the 12th annual GLAMFA (Greater Los Angeles Master of Fine Arts) Exhibition. GLAMFA, as a representation of the next wave of contemporary artists, features the works of MFA and MA students from the greater Los Angeles area and is curated by CSULB students.

The exhibition will occupy all five CSULB School of Art galleries and expand into other spaces around campus as needed to accommodate work that is best served outside the gallery environment. We invite you to submit your work for jury selection.

GLAMFA has been held in August for the past 11 years, but this year, same as last year, we are hosting the show in January. We hope that by pushing the date forward, we will have more opportunity throughout the first semester of the year to promote GLAMFA to important curators and artists in the area.
