Working with LIGHT, an often overlooked medium, creates unique opportunities for artists. This is your exhibit to show off your illuminating talents. Of our annual shows, this exhibit has that extra spark of creativity as artists make light art. There are so many new technologies that open possibilities – Interactive, experimental or conceptual. This year we’re allocating one room to be flooded with UV light specifically to properly illuminate UV reactive artworks. If your art glows in a dark setting and needs a dark gallery space, this is your opportunity to have a dark gallery setting to shed a light on your art. Create your most illuminating artworks, and experiment with light. From darkness to LIGHT, that’s the essence of what this exhibit is about. Now, let’s play in the glow!
