About the Exhibit Theme:

In a society where the focus seems to be doing more, spending more, having more, at times we need to focus on calm and contentment. Perhaps you find peace in nature or in family. In music, or words. Be it an experience, place, or person, we ask you to share what brings you serenity, where or how you find your peace. 

Opening Reception  In lieu of a formal reception and in a effort to avoid elbow to elbow crowds, we will host an Opening Day for this exhibit. Opening Day will be September 18  (note that this is the weekend of MOSAICS) from 10-6. Visitors throughout the day will be invited to vote for People’s Choice, with their vote (that day only) as an entry to a drawing for one of 2 $25 Gift Certificates.  Artists and those wishing to mingle with them are encouraged to attend an informal gathering from 1-3pm. Awards will be posted at the beginning of the day  for viewing and announced via email and Facebook  at 1pm. At this time, with utmost caution for the health and safety of our artists and visitors, we will refrain from serving refreshments. We truly wish to celebrate the juried artists while also respecting the ongoing climate of uncertainty in regards to Covid.
