Artists use different media for a variety of reasons – to express a visual image, to evoke memories, to reduce and recycle, to create a texture or feeling, or to show mastery of a material. Whatever you choose, your media matters, because it is conveys your concept. This exhibition will showcase the varied “stuffs” that we use and the extraordinary array of what they inspire us to create.


All mediums will be considered.
