“The Power of Art” – Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has ever known. Art is powerful because it touches us emotionally. It can educate us. It can promote cultural appreciation. It can inspire hope, courage or understanding. Please submit work in keeping with this theme.

* There will be room for 7-8 larger pieces for those who paint larger. First come, first served as can be accommodated.
