"Bringing Art to the People and People to the Arts"

As artists, we are often looking for 'new' inspiration.... 'new' ideas... and 'new' subjects. We travel to different places with different scenery and different people - all in search of ideas that we haven't seen before and inspiration that we haven't followed before. In this journey, we overlook that which is right under our noses... the local beauty! For this show, we encouraged our artists to slow down and take in the world that is right outside their doors. Explore places in their own backyards and people they see everyday.
