Call to Artists
We miss you! Raices Taller 222 Art Gallery & Workshop, known as a place for celebration of art and community, sends you a huge GRACIAS for your continuing generous support that has kept us going throughout this time of COVID-19.
In spite of social distancing, it is still vital that people continue to find comfort and purpose through their creative outlets. “Corazones Unidos” is our first completely online exhibition that we hope will reach out to the community for connections and creations from the heart during the pandemic. As people from all over the world have found themselves either in lock-down or on the front line combating the virus, we want this exhibition to be a celebration and a timely reminder that art has the power to unite and connect us in times of crisis. Our hope is that this exhibition will virtually connect and unite our community with artwork by artists expressing their feelings and experiences during this period of self-isolation. Join us in sharing your artwork digitally with the community!
