Artwork, whether the subject matter is of a building, particular street, a person or object transformed to an image, should represent your experience and/or perspective of the community.”

“Our goal is to attract and show images created by artists inspired by their experience and contact with the community,” the gallery owner said. “We hope to attract entries from local and regional artists to help tell us about the Farmville they know.”
