Prospectus for 2022 Member Only Show: Horizon

 

A horizon is defined as the limit of a person’s mental perception, experience, or interest. This exhibition aims for you to go beyond the horizon. The goal is expanding your horizons, broadening your horizons, exploring new horizons, or aspiring to greater horizons. During this Spring 2021 season we ask our artists to explore their own styles and surpass their perceived limitations. We encourage artists to share their horizons with the community.
