“Unfettered” On Exhibit
The Art Show “Unfettered” will be held Saturday, April 7th (7-11pm) at Wagner Auto Group, Tyler.
This one night curated art show will have a scene like no other. “This will be an extremely exciting evening out to peruse original art, watch live art demos, and check out some extremely talented art vendors,” said Kerian Massey, curator of the show.
“There will be a variety of art centered around the theme of ‘Unfettered.’ To be unfettered is to come undone, to let go or to become free, without ties.” All art will be juried in by a panel of judges and awards will be presented.
For more info contact Kerian Massey at email@example.com or call (903)714-7414
For those who would like to be a part of the show but would like to sell more, there will be an area for select fine art for sale. All artwork is subject to review for quality and content. Absolutely no resale items with the exception of canvas prints and fine art prints.
