Art Gallery Opening

Whet Your Palette: Black & White Exhibit Opening

The subject and medium is up to you as long as work is in black and white.  We are planning a month-long display/exhibit to coincide and occur at the end of the show dates, so sculpture or other medium that needs pedestal display may be more limited.

Whet Your Palette: Social Commentary Exhibit Opening

This show is not a forum for politics per se, but rather for concerns about more global issues such as environment, poverty, health care, family and relationships, national and cultural identity, economy, violence in society, social media, and lifestyle.  Poetry and music will also be considered.
