Focus on the Details II
July 20 - Aug 23, 2018


An all media juried exhibit exploring the details of imagery.

Artists explore the details of imagery in their artwork. For some, this means perhaps zooming in on an area showing great detail or subject matter that has great detail overall. For others it is a focus on texture or the technique of macro photography. The theme was open to interpretation by the artists and was open to any medium, 2D or 3D.
