GALLERY & ON-LINE GALLERY: There are two opportunities to get into this show. The juror will select works that will be exhibited at The Studio Door gallery in San Diego. Additionally, the juror will select works that will be shown in the on-line gallery only. This allows for more works to be seen beyond the limitations of the main gallery. You have the option to declare “in gallery”, “on-line gallery” or both during the application process. All accepted works regardless of “in gallery” or “online gallery” are eligible for Best in Show.
