2023 CFEVA Members Exhibition: The Calm Before the Storm
“The Calm Before the Storm” invites CFEVA Artist Members to showcase concepts that embrace maximalism and excess visual noise in contrast with the exploration of emptiness and solitude. These seemingly opposing visual representations will be interconnected throughout the gallery in this group exhibition.
Deadline to submit work for consideration: April 24, 2023
Submission is open to CFEVA Artist Members of any level. Please visit CFEVA.org/membership to join or renew.
