Call for Art: Dog Days of Summer


You are invited to share your artwork in the Eagan Art House’s next 2D Community Art Exhibit, Dog Days of Summer.

To us, it’s the hottest time of the year, inspiring relaxation and respite. To the Greeks and Romans, “dog days” referred to late summer when the dog star, Sirius, rose just before the sun, bringing danger.

What does this season mean to you? Share your representation of summer in this seasonal exhibit.

Ideas to inspire you…

  • Colors, patterns, and materials representing heat or relaxation
  • A scenic representation of summer weather and nature
  • A portrayal of warm-weather activities
  • Something that the sun brings into your life during summer months
