This year Tall Grass Gallery continues its long tradition of presenting the Annual Tall Grass Gallery Artists Exhibit in August and September, an opportunity for members of the Tall Grass family of artists to show together and share their diverse approaches to creative work.
Sixty-nine artists will participate in this year’s show with works in a wide range of subjects and styles. Included will be acrylic, oil and watercolor paintings; pastels; ink drawings; photographs and digital prints; etchings; monoprints; mixed media; collage; assemblage; soft and wire sculptures; jewelry; handblown, stained, and fused glass works; hand stitched embroidery and appliqué.
Those taking part come from a variety of backgrounds and levels of experience, and many will be familiar to our visitors. They are highly respected artists, designers, and educators, included in private collections, and gallery and museum exhibits regionally, nationally, and internationally. Others are beginning their exhibition careers, and several have been juried into the Gallery Artists group just this year.
