We are calling upon all artists to participate by submitting their original, creative, and innovative art that captures the essence of the theme transformation and the autumn equinox.

In this collaborative event, we welcome artists to explore the ways that transformation manifests in our lives, nature, and beyond. Your art could delve into the nature of falling leaves, the interplay between light & dark, reflecting on the past, or gratitude for the harvest. Let your imagination flow and embrace the spirit of innovation as you interpret and express the theme.

Artists have the opportunity to submit either their completed works that embody the essence of autumn's transformation or propose project/artwork ideas that they wish to bring to life for this exhibit. We encourage you to think outside the conventional boundaries and create pieces that evoke emotions, inspire curiosity, and foster dialogue among our diverse audience.

Together, let's transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, celebrating the beauty of change through the power of art.
