January 2nd through March 22nd, 2023

EXHIBITION DATES: JANUARY 2 – MARCH 22, 2023

OPENING RECEPTION: MARCH 3, 2023, 5PM – 8PM

We have all discovered a lot about ourselves over the past few years. Between personal growth and finding strengths we didn’t know we had, all of us have discovered something new. Whether that is a new skill, a new passion or just a reminder of what is important in life, we all have made major discoveries!

“With a new day comes new strength.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

“The Art of Discovery” will be a great chance for artists to show their vibrancy through art! Subject matter may include artwork with bright colors, images showing strength, uplifting images, and is open to your interpretation! Artists are encouraged to submit anything you feel fits the theme, whatever that means to you! The theme ties directly to the mission of Rose Brooks Center.

The mission of Rose Brooks Center is to break the cycle of domestic violence so that individuals and families can live free of abuse. Each year, Rose Brooks Center reaches over 14,000 individuals and pets. While hundreds of individuals find safety in emergency shelter, thousands more are served outside of shelter each year.

Artworks may include: paintings, photography, 3D pieces, fiber works, jewelry, and much more! 50% of sold artwork sales will go directly to artists, with the remaining 50% benefiting Rose Brooks Center.

Please limit the number of submissions to 5. There is no entry fee for this exhibition.
