This year Sacramento Fine Arts Center (Sac Arts) celebrates food and art in two ways. We have a food-themed juried art show this November. Information for that show is coming SOON. We’ve also received a grant to do something unique and creative; an art cookbook. This community art cookbook will be self-published by Sac Arts with assistance from the Sacramento County TOT Grant program. This cookbook will be made up of recipes from multiple individuals and feature artwork from local artists. Sac Arts is looking forward to working with the community to create a publication that celebrates Sacramento’s rich culinary and visual arts sectors.
General Information: Submissions to this cookbook will be open to all residents of the Greater Sacramento Region.
Artists may submit their own art and recipe or partner with one another during the submission process. Only high resolution photos and legible documents will be considered.
Deadline to Submit: July 22, 2023 Late submissions will not be considered.
Art Theme and Regulations: Artwork must fit the theme of “Food”. Subject matter can include food, dishes, meals, table settings, still lifes, kitchens, restaurants, farms, and more. Selection of artwork will be at the discretion of Sacramento Fine Arts Center. Some forms of photography may not be accepted. Contact Sac Arts at email@example.com for clarification.

Final selection of the art for the cookbook will be at the discretion of Sac Arts.
Recipe Categories and Regulations: The recipe writer may select multiple categories their recipe would be best suited for. Some categories may include meals (appetizers, breakfast, lunch, dinner), season, raw ingredients (vegetables, fish, beef), and/or cooking techniques. Final categorization and selection of recipes will be at the discretion of Sac Arts.
Sac Arts would like to encourage individuals to submit unique and one of a kind recipes. Chocolate chip cookies are great, but 30 chocolate chip cookie recipes are not as great.

Art & Recipe Submission: Those that submit a recipe and artwork will receive priority during the submission process. However, selection of the entry is not guaranteed.
Artists may choose to partner with a friend, chef or restaurant to submit a recipe, but must work with the writer of the recipe to submit the information together.
Artwork Only Submission: Artists may submit an artwork without an accompanying recipe. Artists will need to use the “Artwork Only” submission form. Sac Arts staff will work to pair your submission with a recipe.
If you would like your art paired with a friend, chef or restaurant to submit a recipe, please use the “Art & Recipe” submission form and work together to submit the information. If you do not submit the information together, Sac Arts will not guarantee the submissions will be paired together in the final publication.
Recipe Only Submission: Chefs, restaurant representatives, and community members may submit a recipe without an accompanying artwork. These individuals will need to use the “Recipe Only” submission form. Sac Arts staff will work to pair your submission with art.
