CALL FOR ART- "Illustrious: Spotlight on Regional Illustration"

Illustrious: Spotlight on Regional Illustration, the Durham Art Guild’s latest juried theme exhibition, will highlight the varied work of the area's most talented and innovative artists exploring illustration. As a particularly diverse art form, illustration relies heavily on context. Artists use line, color, technique and any number of mediums to show or explain tangible and intangible concepts and subjects alike.
