We are currently accepting submissions for IT’S BEEN A WHILE, an exhibition of visual artwork created within the last 2 years by Arts Council members and other local and regional artists.
It’s been a while is a love letter to our local artist community. It has been 2 years since we have been able to see each other, gather in community spaces, talk about what we are working on and share in the exploration and enjoyment of art. This exhibition is a celebration of the artwork that has been created by our local artist community within the last 2 years. For some, the impact of COVID and the closure of workspaces and businesses have led to a very productive and creative time; for others, it has been a creative achievement to produce one new piece. Wherever you find yourself in this process, we want to share and celebrate your work. It’s been a while. What have you been working on? We miss you.
This exhibition will be displayed at The Art Depot at 35 5th St. in downtown Hollister from March 25th-May 6th, 2022.
Artist applications may be submitted online. An application fee of $15 is applied to non-members; there is no participation fee for current Arts Council Artist Members. Learn more about our Artist Membership Program.
