“Community/Member art exhibits are a great way to get a range of artists from the local community to exhibit their work together. Not only does it provide established artists with an event where they can present their work, but it also gives up-and-coming amateur artists the opportunity to enter the art world
Themes for upcoming Exhibits
February Famous Landmarks
Choose a famous international landmark or building for inspiration. Try the Guggenheim Museum, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Eiffel Tower, or the Empire State Building as a starting point for artists to create an architectural impression of their own making,
You could also bring this theme back to a local level by focusing on a local landmark, historical event or building.
March Local inspiration
This theme brings out diverse artistic interpretations of a local space and is broad enough to produce a wide range of works.
April Inspired by Great artists
Pick a famous artist as an inspiration- for example Van Gogh, Degas, Rembrandt, Pollock, or Picasso – and encourage artists to create a work which displays a figurative, literal, or thematic inspiration of that particular artist’s work on their own.
May The Delight of a Fair or Carnival
This theme can be about the atmosphere of a fair or through a child eyes on how a fair feels and looks to them. Your imagination of blending colors.
June Tiny Art
Tiny art is small work in two or three dimensions measuring no larger than 20cm by 20cms. It also challenges artists to focus their ideas by narrowing down the size and scope of the work.
This theme is able to be widely interpreted. Self-portraiture is an excellent way to get artists to think about any kind of object or subject matter that expresses their own identity.
August – Monster Mashup
Monster Mashup is a collaborative project between local elementary aged children and artists. The goal is to get children invested and interested in many diverse art mediums and to provide an insight into different perspectives and processes. We have a lovely volunteer group of elementary children that have agreed to design their own Monsters and draw us pictures of their creations. Those pictures will be handed off to an extremely talented group of local artists who will re-interpret them into “grown-up” pieces of art. Artists and Children please call the center if you would like to participate in this project!
September Unique Medium

November National identity
