Coker Family Gallery Crocker Kingsley Exhibiton

The 2019 Crocker-Kingsley Exhibition features over 80 works chosen by the Juror David Pagel of Los Angeles. Pagel is an art critic who writes regularly for the Los Angeles Times.  He is also a professor of Art Theory and History at Claremont Graduate University and an adjunct curator at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York.  (An avid cyclist, he is a five-time winner of the California Triple Crown!)

From the over 1900 entries, Pagel has selected 80 finalists whose works will be exhibited in the gallery 
at Blue Line Arts and from these 80, he has selected the five winners of the Crocker-Kingsley Prizes. New this year will be a $250 prize for the People's Choice from the Blue Line Arts exhibition. 

The Crocker-Kingsley Exhibition at Blue Line continues a tradition first started in 1927 when the Kingsley Art Club staged an exhibition of its members’ work. By 1940 the show was juried and now cash prizes are awarded. Working with the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento and the Blue Line Gallery in Roseville, the exhibition attracts California’s established artists as well as those just emerging on the scene. Past exhibitors have included many of the premier names in American and Californian art, including Robert Arneson, Kathryn Uhl Ball, Elmer Bischoff, Fred Dalkey, David Gilhooly, Ralph Goings, Gregory Kondos, Roland Petersen, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, Fritz Scholder and Wayne Thiebaud.

The Kingsley Art club was founded in 1892, and continues today, as an arts education organization. Our mission is to promote the knowledge and appreciation of art among the members and the community. Our activities include monthly lectures, a merit award program for community colleges, a high school student artists show at the Crocker Art Museum, an elementary school docent program as well as the Crocker-Kingsley exhibition. 

We invite you to join us in learning more about the arts. If you would like to attend our lectures or learn more about our group, please visit our website at
