Reflections: Juried Art Exhibit at E3 Convergence, Missoula, Mont. June 3

Reflections-E3-ConvergenceE3 is excited for our summer group exhibit! This time around we asked artists to respond to the theme “Reflections” and the results are an amazing line-up of twenty-two artists with a beautiful variety of 50 artworks plus a selection of coinciding poetry. Some take reflections literally in their physical sense, others explored introspectively, each a hidden gem of the individual’s vision.

Finish choices for metal are High Gloss or Satin (with the white background, I think I would choose Satin). Metal prints have a float mount (hanger) on the back.
