Ceremony: a midsummer celebration

Ceremony will be a fully virtual art exhibit for 2021, so no need to drop off or pick up work. Artists will be required to send in a high resolution photo of their work for our online gallery. Due to Covid-19 restrictions and for our communities' general health and safety we have decided not to open the gallery doors just yet for in person viewing.  We are looking forward to more indoor in person exhibitions soon, so stay informed by subscribing to our email and look out for the 2022 exhibition and event calendar and for future artist opportunities.
Submissions are limited to members only so please fill out our membership form and submit along with an annual membership fee of $15.00 below.
Submissions extended to June 17th at 11:59pm for this virtual exhibit!

Although this exhibit will be virtual, there will be an outdoor Midsummer celebration festival on our front lawn on June 19th, 2021 see information below!

The summer solstice celebration has long been an earthly tradition that has transcended across cultures. The act of ritual and ceremony is a something all cultures participate in, that be religiously, culturally, or within their family. We invite artists to submit work that touches on subjects having to do with these themes of ceremony, tradition, and ritual in their own personal life experience, in honoring what our living world gives back to us.
