Jurors: Chip Thomas and Thea Gahr

This juried exhibition of hand-made prints will address basic principles of human connections. Some things to consider: What qualities, experiences, and goals do we share? How do we strengthen the community and empower individuals? How do we further our spiritual connection to the earth?

“My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together”. Desmond Tutu

“Survival of the world depended on our sharing what we have, and working together. If we don’t the whole world will die. First the planet, and next the people.” Frank Fools Crow
