This exhibition’s reception will fall on Thursday October 18th, the first night of Norfolk’s NEON Festival in the NEON District (Norfolk’s Art District). In 2017, the NEON Festival had about 4,000 people attend the two day festival. Artists may submit up to 3 works for consideration, and the entry fee is $35.00.

Accepted artists are encouraged to send additional individually packaged and sealed edition prints of the accepted exhibition work that will be for sale in our gallery as well.
