Call to Entry for the TJAA Winter 2017 Curated Member Show at the Gallery at North Haven Gardens

Show Theme: "Take A Closer Look"  

We look at the physical world around us for artistic inspiration … but to create artwork for this show, let’s take a closer look:  Instead of a field, focus on one aspect of the field.  Instead of a tree, focus on a limb or a leaf, or the bug on the leaf.  Instead of a leaf, focus in on the microscopic level.
