Artists have until May 20 to submit work for a juried show called “Celebrating the National Lands of California” at the Wildling Museum of Art and Nature in Solvang.

A total of $4,000 will be awarded for first-, second- and third-place winners. Entries in any “wall-hung medium” will be accepted as long as they represent one of the national parks, monuments, preserves or recreation areas in California.

The exhibit, which will open July 20, is intended to increase awareness of the federal lands in the state and to celebrate and discuss “wildness,” nature and preservation, a museum spokesman said.

Artists can submit digital images of their work for judging at For more information, go to
