Deadline June 30th

Once again Gallery 1978 celebrates its Friends with an exhibit for current supporters from July 8-30. This show is very popular.

This year we are asking for artists to submit something self-reflective: A visual narrative expression of your happiness, anger, sadness, loves, fantasies or passions...because this is what visual artists do so well

Last year there were 44 artists represented on the walls and pedestals and several hundred guests passing thru the gallery during the show's run.

Join us this year!
