"FUNderful" Art Exhibit


Lookie! Lookie! Come to the show! Del Ray Artisans invites you to the main attraction, FUN-derful, a curated exhibit of witty, punny, colorful, silly, humorous and just (LOL) FUN art by local area artists. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

But, wait! There's more! We are featuring a sideshow mini FUN-raiser called: "Can You Spare A Square?" Artists are adopting small square matboards and donating completed works of art to support Del Ray Artisans. These small creations will be available to take home at the time of purchase ("cash and carry"), and the most "spectacular squares" will be framed and raffled at the close of the exhibit.

Please join us for a "FUN-derful" time at the opening reception on Friday, August 5 from 7-9pm. Come enjoy the artwork and mingle with artists and art appreciators during this unveiling of the exhibit.
