Opening Reception: Friday, August 14

Art, and more importantly the artist’s ability to conjure imagery and provoke imagination is not unlike that of a magician. Magic can mystify the audience and blur the line between possibility and implausibility. Artists were encouraged to consider art & magic as one and interpret the theme in a variety of ways.
