The enhancement of this public place by integrating the creative work of artists improves the pedestrian experience and acts as a “gateway” into the heart of Salida. Ideally, the considered concept should be considered a “landmark” that can be associated with Salida, one that will draw attention and encourage engagement.

AVA Community Art Center in Gillette, WY invites artists to submit three (3) artworks for consideration in the Harvest Exhibition. The deadline to submit to this exhibit is June 23rd, 2023 by 11:59pm.
The theme of Harvest is a broad one. Many crops are planted and tended before harvest while other delights are found in the wild. Apples and asparagus are harvested and so are tea, truffles and trees. And… cabbages, coconuts, cranberries, cocoa, and coffee.
When you picture these plants and fruits, do you also see the love and labor of people? Do you see cooking and artful display of food? Family dinner? A baby enjoying the textures of playing with their food? The theme of Harvest is broad and subject to your interpretation.

Open to all U.S. based artists
