New Voice Exhibition
Apr 3 – May 23 all-day

The vision of the New Voice exhibit is to showcase regional emerging artists, pulled from area colleges and local talent, with enough space to exhibit a body of work while offering the community a unique look into contemporary creativity. As this exhibit becomes a part of our yearly schedule, we look to showcase new artists each year and encourage developing artists in the community to become involved with this process.
