Call to Artists
“RETRO” AT ARTEL GALLERY For its upcoming exhibit, Artel Gallery is encouraging artists take something nostalgic or old fashioned—focusing on the time period of the 1940s to the 1980s—and create a new art piece with the “retro” look using experimental techniques and/or media. Drop off is August 30, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. and August 31, 1-4 p.m. at Artel Gallery. The show will be on exhibit September 2-October 17, 2014. Artel Gallery, 223 S. Palafox, Old County Courthouse. artelgallery.org
