What’s Happening at the Art Center?
IN THE THOMAS GALLERY
MAY 10 – JULY 15, 2017
It’s all about the face, but maybe it’s time to turn and face a new direction! We’re looking for work that shows a unique point of view—an unusual angle, a fun technique, a different way of looking at the subject. Go ahead, assume a new point of view, and show us the results!
Gallery Hours: Wed – Sun 11 am – 5 pm
Pick Up Artwork:
Sunday, July 16 2 – 5 pm
CALL FOR ARTISTS!
GET READY FOR OUR NEXT EXHIBIT:
Abstract art uses a visual language that does not depict a person, place or thing in the natural world. It is a departure from reality. The subject of the work is based on what you see: color, shape, texture, size, or scale. Let go of reality and discover your abstract side!
Sunday, July 16 2 am – 5 pm
July 19 – September 23, 2017
