baright GALLERY ARTIST SERIES:
COMMUNITY

April 4 to July 7, 2020

FONTENELLE FOREST IS PROUD TO PRESENT COMMUNITY, A BARIGHT GALLERY ARTIST SERIES EXHIBIT CELEBRATING THE ARTWORKS OF THE FONTENELLE FOREST COMMUNITY.

Community is a non-juried, salon-style exhibit that celebrates the creativity of our members, neighbors, staff, volunteers and friends. This show is a portrait of a vibrant, diverse, and multifaceted ecosystem of makers featuring artists of any age and working in any medium, style theme or concept.

This exhibit will be on view in our gallery from April 4 to July 7, 2020. An opening reception will take place on April 4, 2020. The Baright Gallery Artist Series is sponsored by Mutual of Omaha.
