We have decided to do a second STAND show, as artists continue to address the many issues coming to the fore in our society today. Exploration, expression and discussion are needed on so many topics: education, justice, climate, the environment, foreign relations, sexism, racism and many more. All points of view are welcome.

Eligible Work

While we welcome all kinds of expression, our space is limited so each artist is welcome to bring one piece with a maximum size of 24″x36″ for 2D and less than 50lbs. for 3D. If you have an odd sized piece or installation, please contact us to discuss placement.

Entry Process & Fee

This exhibition is open to all and is not juried. The entry form must be received in the office by 12pm, Wednesday, January 23, 2019.
