An Open, All Media, Juried Show
On Display Nov 30-Dec 30
Reid Hodges Gallery
An all media open juried show with a twist or two. An entry requirement is that all pieces must be 12” x 12” or smaller (framed or unframed). Another twist, buyers will be able to take their newly acquired artwork right off the wall and will not have to wait for the exhibit to end to receive their purchases!
This exhibit will be shown with the International Society of Scratchboard Artists and the Holiday Extravaganza. Opening Reception will be Dec 1, 5:00-7:00. We will also kick-off the Artful Holidays sale.
