Artist Selection Criteria

We, at SBSGOAF, are always striving to improve our event year after year. To us this means accepting quality artists who also strive to better themselves year after year while staying true to our Sea glass and Ocean art judging guidelines.

Sea glass artists: only authentic ocean tumbled sea glass and shards are to be used. All sea glass must retain its natural color and must not be altered in any way or colored.

Any art or jewelry incorporating sea glass is acceptable and completely open to creative interpretation.

Ocean artists: Artists who incorporate materials found along the seashore, man made (such as plastics or metals that wash ashore) or natural, into their artwork will be given first preference in this category. Next preference will be fine artists that incorporate ocean inspired themes into their medium.

Our goal is to create a completely unique art experience for our customers, one that is not replicated anywhere else in Santa Barbara.

GOING GREEN note to artists:

This year our desire is to create an environmentally aware event by "going green". For you this means searching out packaging materials that are recycled or paper. We will not allow single use plastic bags.

At the event, you will notice some green changes we are making to lessen our environmental footprint. We know this is not only better for our environment but is also keeping true the recycled nature of our art. 

Thank you for keeping "Green" in mind.
