Looking for Artists for upcoming WGSL Exhibition
Our next Guild exhibition is titled Concealed/Revealed and is scheduled for this summer at the Gretchen Brigham Gallery during the Union Avenue Opera season performance of The Barber of Seville. The title of the exhibition is inspired by the dominant story theme of the opera where the main characters use subterfuge and disguise. The gallery has high visibility with pre-show refreshments, intermissions & post show “meet & greets” during each performance with typically 400-450 patrons for each show. The exhibition will be on display from July 22nd - Aug 16th and includes 4 performances of the opera. Please join us for this exciting opportunity to show our fiber work to a whole new audience!
Gretchen Brigham Gallery is located at Union Avenue Christian Church, 733 N. Union Avenue.
Entry forms are due by June 1st (no photos required but appreciated for publicity purposes).
Finished work ready for display due by July 20th.
