Call for Artists: "Cultural Crossroads" Deadline August 19!

"I can't think of a more relevant theme than 'Cultural Crossroads' with its inclusive connotations and connections. Its open-ended in approach, allowing for a wide variety of opinions, expressions, and media--a perfect mix for a juried show. I am looking forward to a wide variety of responses. I challenge all of the artists to feel free to even step outside their level of comfort in considering their submissions this year. "      David J. Brown
