The Member Spotlight show will focus on your artist’s voice.  What captures the spirit of your art practice? This is a chance to share YOUR passion, your unique point of view. What has influenced your work over the years? How has it changed? Was there a turning point that brought you to the way you work today? A technique with which you are obsessed? What is your relationship to your art? This exhibit is a chance to let all of our members’ individuality take center stage.

This is a non-juried exhibition, however, one artwork per artist may be selected depending on space.
