March 2020: Nurtured Spaces
The Dalles Art Center is excited to announce the first open juried show of 2020: Nurtured Spaces. This is a continuation of TDAC’s traditional Spring garden themed show. In 2019 artists explored the connection of nurturing potential in nature and in humanity. This year we are asking you to explore the spaces that we nurture and that nurture us. What does a nurtured space mean to you? Artwork could range from images of gardens to repurposed metal sculptures to multi-media expressions.
The exhibit is a collaboration with The Master Gardeners and the City of The Dalles Beautification Committee. Master Gardeners will be hosting the opening and will be on hand with information on gardening and their program offerings. This is an effort to support the community initiative put forth by Mayor Rich Mays with his Beautification Committee. Please join us in the exploration of nurtured spaces in The Dalles by entering your work in this exhibition.
Nurtured Spaces is an open juried show in March 2020. Artwork will be accepted from February 25th to February 29th.
