 A Call For Art!

Me + You is a show about relationships. This can be interpreted in many ways. Would you like to explore your relationship with another person (family, friends, enemies, etc) or with food, music, or with a new medium? This theme can go in many different directions, but must discuss something you directly have a relationship with and how it affects you.

Me + You will be held at the Hallberg Center for the Arts in Wyoming, MN. It is a beautiful location with great space for 2D and 3D work, as well as, a stage and audio equipment. Songwriters, actors, singers, musicians and filmmakers are all encouraged to submit work for this show!

Additional details for submitting to the show will be available by April 12.

This show will be curated by member JoAnn Hendricks. She is a visual artist working in graphite and ink. She draws the figure from life with simple, purposeful lines. Her work concentrates more on composition rather than rendering a likeness of the subject.
