DEADLINE: February 29th, 2016

Touch Tours for the visually impaired – If you have work that you feel is interesting for someone who is visually impaired to touch, apply for this opportunity! This is a great way to reach out to the community.

Trading Places: at Grinter Gallery

  • Work is Due to Ailynda by FEBRUARY 14th!
    • Ailynda still need volunteers to sign-up for installation!
      • Installation is Wednesday, February 17th from 8am-2pm & 3pm – 5pm
      • Opening of the exhibition is on March 11th, 2016 at 6pm

The work that is currently in the exhibition will not fill up the space. Ailynda thought it would be a good idea to fill the empty space with individual work by those participating in the exhibition. This would be a great way to exemplify and compare the collaborative work to solo work. Ailynda has designated a cart in the kiln room for solo work. If you are interested in putting solo work in the show, please place that work on the cart ASAP so Ailynda can see how much space has will be filled.
