WINGS: A Juried Exhibition & Competition
February 9 - March 18, 2020
The Art Gallery of Viera, in cooperation with Bluewater Creative Group, will present ‘Wings,’ an exciting exhibition and art competition focusing on the artistic interpretations of the wonder and magic that is found in wings. Wings of flight, angelic wings, abstract and surreal wings all contain a level of wonder and magic in their patterns and performance. We intend to showcase that magic and develop a conversation between artist and audience with this wonderful theme.
This event will showcase artists from around the county and abroad, all selected from an open call for entries. The works on exhibition focus on the magic of wings and their form and all artists are welcome to attend the February 15 exhibition reception.
