The Eccles Art Center will be curating an invitational exhibit and events during March 2020. As March is International Women’s History month. The Art Center will present Women: The Creative Edge. During this month, the non-profit Next Ensemble will present a concert of works by women composers. We are working with Women Create and local artists to set up a Saturday studio tour and tea. Other local non-profits will be approached to establish cooperative projects.
We would like to invite you to participate with the submission of art in the 2020 Women: Creative Edge Invitational Competition/Exhibit.
