All mediums welcome, including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, collage, fiber arts, ceramics and jewelry. This is a juried show with no entry fee and is open to all artists to submit.

The work will be prominently displayed in the Lobby Gallery during the holiday season which includes our annual Holiday Art Market. Join us for a reception on Friday, November 16 from 5-7pm at the Dahl Arts Center. This is the first night of the Holiday Art Market and the opening day for the Dancing Demons exhibit in the Shaver Gallery.
