"Drawing from Memory"
Show us what you think "drawing from memory" represents. All works will be accepted (which means that no, it does not have to be an actual drawing). Bring on your creative genius! Drop off will be August 24 - September 2. Reception takes place on First Friday, September 4, from 5 - 8 pm.
Darla Dolinger is our featured artist for the month so be sure to check out her works.
