“Unleashed” National Juried Exhibition at Gallery Underground in August
Dates: August 1-31, 2020
– No opening reception due to health safety regulations –
Gallery Underground’s Focus Gallery in August presents Unleashed, a national juried exhibition juried by Joseph Toole. Artists were given the following definition for “unleashed:” to free from or as if from a leash – let loose; or to throw, shoot, or set in motion forcefully. The show sought submissions of works with either a literal interpretation of setting free or setting in motion, or a more figurative response to the theme. The show features works from all over the country in a variety of media including paintings, photography, glass, fiber art and mixed media.
The Main Gallery presents an August show of new member work in all media.
