CALL FOR ARTISTS!

Join us Tuesday, APRIL 5th for our ‘Let Art Heal’ Group Art Exhibit & Silent Auction! Each month, the ArtHaus will host a Salon event at Our House Culture Center to:

    • Connect: with  the community even before opening,
    • Educate & Develop Leaders: our Speaker Series is focused on relevant, “right-now” topics for young and budding professionals, and entrepreneurs,
    • Fundraise: we need $75,000 to finish renovations and every value-packed event gets us closer!

Our solution is a win-win monthly event!

FOR INTERESTED ARTISTS…

We are excited that you are interested in participating in our Art Salon & Silent Auction. This event is a curated art exhibit around the theme “Let Art Heal.”

In solidarity with Ukraine and as a healing event for the community after 2+ years of a pandemic and escalating gun violence in the city, artists are encouraged to interpret this theme in any way that resonates with them (abstract, realistic, gun violence, domestic violence, family separation, racism, etc.) Works need not be recently created but should reflect the theme: healing, restoration, humanity, etc.
