Most of us, if not everyone, knows people that are more familiar to us.  This is the group with whom you interact on a more frequent and personal basis.  Whether you run into them at the local coffee shop or restaurant or you see them at events or other social functions, have you ever thought “How do THEY perceive me?”  Also, “How do YOU perceive them?”

Now, how can you, as a visual artist, convey this perception, truthfully, to an audience.  We will be looking for work that is personal and honest to the artist. Either, how others perceive you and/or how you perceive others.

For this exhibit, artists are encouraged to use all forms of media, 2-D and 3-D (except video). The work submitted should be no more than 3 years old and may not have been exhibited at Gualala Arts or the Dolphin at any time in the past.

This show is not juried nor judged, so it encourages creativity at all levels.
