THE EXHIBITION

Far more than interest or mere enthusiasm, obsession speaks of one’s deeper nature.  This all-media exhibition asks artists to dig into true passion - when the significance of a subject becomes immersive. Obsession can take many forms.  Collections and intense repetition are common examples of how a single object made multiple is physical manifestation of an obsession.  No matter how the artist views their own, or others’ obsessions, this exhibition invites artists to display their own interpretation of this concept.

ENTRY FEE

Artists may submit up to three works for a non-refundable
