2019 Juried Exhibit: Transformations 


September 16, 2019 - March 12, 2020

Artists are invited to submit artwork for a new juried exhibit at City Hall. "Transformations" asks the artist to investigate the positive and negative transitions and transformations that shape human beings and the world. The exhibit seeks to focus on transformations that face our artists and our world on a daily basis such as, psychological, environmental and global to name a few.

Submissions of original artwork created within the past three years will be considered from professional, student and amateur artists. Artists will be paid an exhibition fee and their work will be considered for acquisition into the City’s Civic Art Collection.
