CALL FOR ARTIST
For our new exhibit, Hidden Images, we are looking for abstract artwork that contains “illusions” and motivates the viewer(s) to take a more concentrated and in-depth look at each work. The abstract artwork should communicate to viewer(s) a deeper meaning than what is interpreted at first glance. Artists are encouraged to create works that seek dual-meanings through optical illusion, satire, layering, etc.
