After the successful opening of the Everett City Hall Gallery, the Everett Cultural Council is once again accepting entries for a second installation of art from local and regional artists. This upcoming theme will reflect on the theme Open Spaces, Favorite Places for an exhibition, April 1 to May 21.
“The opening of the City Hall Art Gallery has received an overwhelmingly positive response from residents and the artistic community. I want to thank our cultural council members for all their hard work in making this happen as we honored black history month by celebrating our diversity through art,” said Mayor DeMaria.
“Now as we look forward to Earth Day, we are asking artists to reflect on the beauty of our local environment and open spaces in and around our community.”
The theme asks artists to reflect on the open spaces in their lives. Favorite open spaces, places that spark thoughts, calm the mind, rejuvenate, energize, and inspire. Favorite places that lift you up or remind you of our place in this world.
