The Art Wall
If you would like your art work to be considered for a show on the UU Art Wall in Fuller Hall please write an e-mail to the committee chair, Connie Cleaton. If you have a website or blog with your images on it you can send her the link and/or some jpegs of your current work. She will forward them to the committee. If neither of these options work for you, in rare cases we allow artists to bring several examples of their work to the art wall committee meeting, where a jury of 6-7 members will decide if your work is appropriate for an exhibit.
