SHOW Retakes and Transformations: Art from everyday life

A close look at everyday life—delving into habits, routines, favorite things and surroundings—giving familiar items new life through art.

This all membersí showcase takes a close look at everyday life—delving into habits, routines, favorite things and surroundings—giving familiar items new life through art.

The exhibition will also feature an "Art for everyday life" market—stocked with fine handcrafts and shrink-wrapped artworks. Come checkout the aesthetics that enhance everyday life. Market artworks are available for purchase and pick up immediately. Show artwork may be purchased at any time, but must remain on display until the last weekend of the show (October 1-2).
