Apply to have your work featured as part of our upcoming show: Regrowth. This is an art show about healing and persistence amidst harm. We are looking for work that explores the way natural and human systems move through damage, harm and pain. This show focuses on how these systems recover, renew, and reimagine themselves. In a world of oppression, inequality, and exploitation, how does your community heal? All mediums are welcome! Applications are due June 5th. Artists will be notified June 10th. The show will open in mid June and run through the end of July.
