40 Below: Juried Exhibition for Emerging Artists

Juror Tanya Lukin-Linklater has chosen the best of many artistic submissions for this, the W.K.P. Kennedy Gallery's inaugural exhibition 40 Below, a juried show created to showcase our region's best and brightest emerging artists. The exhibition incorporates a variety of artistic media and ranges from paintings to prints, sculpture, and video animation. 

You are invited to join us in celebrating our chosen emerging artists at a reception during the Downtown Gallery Hop on March 20, 2015, from 7 - 9:30 pm.
