Juried Show Spring 2022

Not The World We Used to Know - Juried Art Show

Each day we find ourselves living in unprecedented times. This show asks artists to explore the idea of the before and after, whether that be on a large scale such as pre- and post- COVID-19, or on a more personal, intimate scale such as graduation, popping a bubble, or learning a new song. We are always growing and changing, moving forward through time. Positive and negative, this isn’t the world we used to know. What does that look like to you?

Submissions open Dec 2, 2021 - February 6, 2022.
