Call for Entries: One Bay / Shrinking Shorelines, Toxic Waters   Recently updated !

BridgeMaker Arts seeks art submissions for an upcoming online exhibition launching on Earth Day: April 22, 2021.

We are seeking artworks from San Francisco Bay Area artists which remind us of the beauty of the bay and its shoreline communities.

Our inspiration comes from our hometown, Richmond. Chevron oil spills and contested shoreline projects have threatened the health of the bay, deprived our community of open shoreline, and disturb land filled with toxic chemicals. The wildlife above and beneath the bay is at risk. All that we stand to lose.

These artworks are a call to action. So much has already been lost. We welcome your artworks and ideas.


  • Entry Deadline is April 15.
  • Please submit 3-5 samples of your artworks (paintings, photographs, or mixed media artworks) as .jpgs via email (scroll down for form)
  • There is a tax-deductible donation requested for each submission of $0-15 (click to donate via PayPal).
  • Online exhibit launches on Earth Day 4/22/21 with a virtual Artists Talk.
  • Physical exhibit to be announced.


Each uploaded image can be up to 10,000KB. Please watch for the confirmation message after hitting the "submit" button, so you can be sure your entry is well received.
