reARTiculate

The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center’s annual Regional Juried Exhibit does not have a theme. We are opening a call for entries for another juried show to run simultaneously and be displayed in the Atrium Gallery. The theme of this second juried show is reARTiculate. The challenge to you is to select any one of Arthur Gmeiner’s paintings to interpret in your own style. Arthur Gmeiner was the founder of the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center and he left behind over 150 paintings in his signature style. We would like to honor his work and life through this exhibit on this our 50thanniversary!
