About the Exhibit:
The exhibit “Expression: Raw Emotion” is part of Art Works’ 2020 series exploring artists’ perspectives of the human experience. We encourage artists to submit work that is reactionary in nature to bring focus to human emotion whether it be subtle or extreme. Explore the things that make you laugh out loud and ugly cry. Capture the fear of rejection or the warmth of acceptance. Discover your mischievous side, and share raw emotions through your art.
