Art Exhibitions

at the MTRP Visitor and Interpretive Center

The Mission Trails Regional Park (MTRP) Foundation organizes the art exhibitions on view at the MTRP Visitor and Interpretive Center, presented for the enjoyment of the Center’s more than 80,000 annual visitors. The art exhibitions showcase one artist or groups, and are staged for a period of six weeks. Artworks include wall-hung, two-dimensional, and three-dimensional pieces.

Selected artists have been juried by a panel of working artists and arts educators and the artworks are in a range of media including paint, clay, photography, pastel, fiber, colored pencil, mixed media, and more. For most of the exhibitions, the artists host an opening reception which members of the public are welcome to attend. A portion of artwork sales supports MTRP through the Mission Trials Regional Park Foundation.

Applications for exhibitions are only available and accepted from May 1 through June 30 for the next year. The entry deadline for 2020 is June 30, 2019. Click here for the application.
