CURRENT EXHIBIT

Fantasy Land 

JULY 19-SEPT 7

Juror – Amy Smith

Entries due July 6-8, 12- 4 pm

Theme: The exploration of the realms of dreams, fantasy, and the unconscious mind has had a long history in the world of art. Artists from the 19th century Romantics to the Surrealists and Abstract Expressionists in the 20th century all have plumbed the depths of this fertile subject. So follow in the footsteps of the artists of this diverse movement and give us your best example of this time honored subject.
