Russell Gallery

Reception: Sunday, June 30, 2-4 pm

Join us in celebrating the finest work our community of talented artists has to offer! For “Show Off,” there are no “themes” or guidelines for submission. We simply invited members of our creative community to select one or two of their very best pieces to enter into this exhibition for a show we expect to be rich in both diversity and medium. First-, second-, and third-place prizes will be awarded in recognition of the most outstanding work.
