Ignite Studio Call for Art: Change of Scenery

Ignite Studio Call for Art Change of Scenery

By Sydney B., Arts Education Coordinator

Ignite Studio at the Hamilton East Public Library in Fishers seeks submissions for “Change of Scenery,” our upcoming group exhibition set to celebrate this year’s summer reading program “Adventure Begins at Your Library.”

Art often inspires adventure. How has a change of scenery affected you? How does your art reflect your own adventures or adventures you wish to have? Did you have an adventure with a new art medium or explore an art form you have never tried before? Did you make a big adventurous leap from one medium to another within the artwork? Ignite Studio wants to see your artistic adventures for our new show “Change of Scenery.”

Artwork will be displayed at Ignite Studio, in the lower level of the Hamilton East Public Library at:
5 Municipal Drive, Fishers, IN, 46038
