We will be utilizing both galleries, common areas, classrooms, and any current empty studio spaces. Get the word out to Artists interested in participating!

~ SPECIALLY FOR OUR RESIDENT ARTISTS: ~
We are inviting all our Resident Artists to be present and participate on this day in your studios for no entry fee! Just come in, open your doors, and meet, greet and/or sell your work on this day! (Please note, spaces outside your studio will be reserved for those submitting entry forms.)
We would like to ask you for a basket donation for our basket raffle, this is not mandatory to participate in the show. Proceeds from the fundraiser will however benefit our Art Facility!
