Join us in an exhibit where you can immerse yourself in one of our favorite times of the year.  So how do you savor summer? Is it a time to be one with nature or shelter inside? Are you drawn to leisure, work or play? We look forward to your interpretation of summer, in the media of your choice be it 2 or 3 dimensional images, constructions or sculptures.
