Open Call Exhibition: GALAXY

April 5 @ 8:00 am

April 5 – April 30, 2021

Galaxy evokes images suggestive of cosmic vastness, emptiness, otherworldliness, outer-worldliness, yet can represent an internal as well as an outer landscape. Submitting artists are invited to explore their artwork interpretations of Galaxy through their own personal process and any media, including photography.
