This call for art is open to living artists worldwide, both professional and amateur. All styles and mediums will be considered, including representational, abstract, and conceptual works.

The Western Bureau is a leading collection of contemporary and modern art spanning from the mid-twentieth century to the present. Founded in 2008 in San Jose, California, our mission is to preserve and promote works that have been unjustly overlooked or otherwise under-represented in today’s art market.

Whether it’s reviving the reputation of forgotten masters, celebrating regional art movements, or fostering the current generation of working artists, we strive to maintain this vital resource for educators, historians, curators, collectors, students, and members of the general public interested in exploring the many contours of creative expression.
