Travel can mean both the journey and the destination. But rather than reiterating clichéd images, curious photographers focus their lens on details of a scene, or moments unfolding around them, bringing the region’s culture to life. Were you able to connect with people in a foreign land, even if you didn’t speak the language, by taking their photo? Have you ever captured a day-in-a-life scene that tells a story of tradition or human emotion? Did you find yourself in a stunning landscape far from home, and actually do it justice in a photo? Share your indelible travel memories.

Each year, high school age artists in Santa Cruz county are given space to express themselves and their creativity in a professional gallery setting at the Santa Cruz Art League. This opportunity is to encourage young artists to new heights and support the growing creative community. For over 100 years, the Santa Cruz Art League has proved to be a space for artists to gather, create and display their work. We eagerly look to the future by nurturing and expanding the expression of that vision by supporting these young artists!
The first Santa Cruz Art League Statewide Exhibition was held in 1928. For nine decades, the Santa Cruz Art League’s Statewide Landscape Exhibition has showcased the work of artists who depict California’s foothills, mountains, seashores, and deserts of the interior and coastal regions. In 2019 the Santa Cruz Art League will be celebrating its centennial year.
