Pleasures: A Juried Exhibit - Artists' Reception @ Marion Cultural Alliance

Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA) is proud to present our first juried exhibition! This September, let’s step out of the hustle and bustle and explore the simple PLEASURES that inspire us all. As artists, you draw inspiration from profound beauty and simplicity. From the simplicity of sparse lines, intense color, to varying perspectives. It’s the simple elegance of the natural world that defines a simple pleasure. Artists are to create work inspired by the theme PLEASURES.

Judge will award Honorable Mentions, Third, Second & First places, and Best of Show. Judge’s decisions will be final. Awards will be given at the discretion of the judge and presented at the reception on Friday, September 6, 2019. Exhibit will be on view at The Brick through September 28, 2019.

Join us for our September Artists’ Reception featuring our participating artists. There will be light refreshments served. Admission is free.

This exhibit is sponsored by The Lisa Irwin Midgett & David Midgett Foundation.
