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.

Opening reception on Saturday, April 11.
