Scenes from a Book: The Mind’s Eye

Themed Juried Show

LPCA Themed Juried Show: Scenes from a Book: The Mind's Eye

Have you ever read a book and been able to instantly visualize the scene? Has an author's words allowed you to instantly visualize the setting of a story? This spring, the LPCA celebrates the power of words with a juried show focusing on the intersection of art and literature. Featured works may be inspired by literature, based upon an author's description of a place, be an interpretation of a scene from a novel, or highlight an artist's response to a work of literature. This show will be able to be viewed both in-person and online.
