Calls for Entry

TRIBUTE invites you to create a work of art that is, in essence, a tribute to an artist or particular piece of art and answers some of the following questions:

Why are you an artist, photographer, sculptor? Is it in your DNA? Was there a seminal event that pointed you in this direction, changed your compass heading to "creative"? What was the first work of art that moved you? Was there a piece of architecture that took your breath away? Is there an artist that you would want to have lunch with?

TRIBUTE will run August 2-25 in our downtown gallery. Opening reception planned as part of First Friday, August 2, 5-8pm
