Theme: EXPLORING MINDSCAPES: AN ARTIST’S REFLECTION

The isolation experienced by all during the Covid-19 pandemic and ever-present eyes of social media has caused many to self-reflect on their personal perceptions and experiences. This year’s invitational theme evokes the concept of self-reflection in diverse media and subject matter as to include all artistic expression.
