“Reflections” . . . an unhurried consideration of something recalled to the mind.
The title and theme of the upcoming exhibition is “Reflections”. We encouraged artists to create up to 3 new narrative or story-telling works based on the theme of “Reflections”. All submitted art showcases metalwork in a variety of techniques and forms.
As part of the exhibition, the Pajaro Valley Arts center gallery will also sell member’s art in their gift shop area. In our previous gallery exhibit and sale, many members had successful gallery gift shop sales.
I’ve signed up, what’s next?
