Here Comes the Sun exhibit

The summer show at the Joe Center for the Arts celebrates all things under the sun. Employing the theme of summer sun, artists of all levels were invited to apply creative expression in the arts using any and all kinds of media and to share it for consideration in this juried exhibition. 

So, grab your shades and take a summery dive into those golden rays of light, and let them inspire your art.

The exhibition is free to the public and open Wednesday through Saturday weekly until August 5.
