Mason/ NOVA Juried Exhibition

Mason/ NOVA Juried Exhibition

Rewire Exhibition  

Exhibition Prospectus: 2020 challenged the global community in unique ways. There was fear, confusion and the loss of human contact and connection. But throughout this global test of humanity there was also inspiration, innovation and the discovery of new ways to connect, new ways to be a community. Rewire acknowledges the many ways our daily lives have changed while celebrating the new discoveries made during turbulent times. From the increased need for digital connection to personal revelations all artwork addressing change or growth will be considered.
