Valentines Day will be here before we know it.  This is the opportune time to express your passions through your art.  Passion is a powerful and compelling emotion, desire, or feeling.  Show us what you crave, covet, or aspire to achieve.  There is beauty in passion and loving moments.  Express that love for self, others, animals, interests, quests, labors, or diversions. 

This exhibit showcases 2-D, 3-D, small series, and original Valentine cards.  All mediums are welcomed! Collage, sculpture, assemblage, clay, metal, glass, fiber, wood, oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, pencil, photography, mixed media, encaustic, etc. Let your creativity flow!

We would like to encourage you to consider submitting one large piece and then a series of smaller pieces, no more than 3.  The series can be a companion or complimentary to your larger piece.  Our idea is to incorporate all price points in our gallery to boost sales.  *Check out the picture on our website for an example. 

Original, handcrafted Valentine cards and cards expressing love for all occasions will have their own special display.  Submission is limited to 6 cards.  Card dimensions should not exceed 7 inches in any direction.  All cards must be accompanied by an envelope and packaged by the artist in crystal clear (crispy) polypropylene sleeves that seal. The presentation needs to be professional.  One source for bags is clearbags.com.  Cards must be priced at a minimum of $5.00.

        Curator: Andrea Stutesman and Peggy King will assist.
