Future Exhibitions


In today's fractured, divisive world, connections - both intentional and accidental - are more important than ever. We are bound by love, rituals, family and faith. We are also connected to our past, our community - near and far, and to nature. To be connected is to find commonalities with others.

Light the World

Light is our primary tool for perceiving and understanding the world around us. Without light there is no vision. Light allows us to appreciate the world through shape and form and evokes emotions. Common qualities of light are intensity, quality, color, direction, distribution, texture and movement. Artists are encouraged to explore how light creates and transforms your art.
