National Juried Exhibition
January 6 – Feb 8, 2020
Deadline to enter 5 pm Friday November 22, 2019
Juried by Gavin Glakas
When viewed through a kaleidoscope, the world alters and beautifully distorts reality through its lens. Gallery Clarendon seeks art which challenges the viewer to see the world through a different lens; art which challenges perceptions, depicts alternate viewpoints and reality or simply shows the beauty in seeing things from a different angle. Artists will be asked to submit a statement with their work explaining how it fits the theme.
