It is at the very heart of human nature to gather together to celebrate our traditions, which may vary culture to culture, but our traditions bind us to our predecessors.

For this exhibition we ask artists to submit work that showcase either their personal cultural celebrations, or celebrations that they have had the opportunity to witness.

Works could feature celebrations from July 4th, to the Yi Peng Lantern Festival, to the Holi Festival of Color, to Dia de los Muertos, to Pride Festivals, to Oktoberfest, to Mardi Gras, to Moon Festival, to the Gathering of First Nations, etc.

Artwork could also explore the cultural influences behind clothing, architecture, landscaping, food, etc.

All genres of work will be considered. Get creative!

Please note that canvas, panel, and paper size can be no wider than 40 inches. Giclees or digital works will not be accepted.
