Show description:

This show’s focus will be based on the magical land where Unicorns roam free on the grassy plains with the Jackalope’s. Fairies and Gnomes tend to the wild flowers and mushrooms of the forest where witches live in bone and candy houses. Trolls hide under bridges to torment travelers, troublesome spirits haunt rivers and lakes to lure passersby to a watery grave. Narwhals fight epic battles with ancient creatures in the deeps of the oceans and the castles in the sky float by without taking notice.

Your work can be on the sweet side or a darker interpretation, maybe even comical? Have fun with it! Please nothing overtly sexual or violent, tasteful artistic nudity is acceptable. All mediums will be accepted, traditional wall art, sculpture, fiber art, plush etc…artists will be limited to 3 pieces but please note that we may only accept one of the three.
