thegallery8680: will open its doors at 7-9pm July 17 | 24 for Botanicals Expressions
On the 24th we will be hosting a closing reception and including Artists Community Live Painting: this will be for whatever artists want to come and put there mark on the new cubes the gallery is building to use to help make more of a statement the we are here.
This letter is a call for artists to submit work for the exhibition titled Botanicals. This show is open for all mediums and must be the artist’s original interpretation of Botanicals: Botanical Expression.
Our desire is to create a space for emerging artists of a visionary nature. Whether self-taught or raised within the disciplines of art, we believe that the essence of true artistic expression comes from an earnest desire to say something. We aim to facilitate the artist by promoting the exhibition and sale of art to the general public and the local art population, while hoping to create a hub for an emerging art community. We have had a wonderful response to each of our shows and hope you will join us in creating a new dimension to art in Frisco.
All artists are encouraged to submit work for consideration of this upcoming exhibit.
