Call for Art - Cypress Landing Resident Artists Virtual Show - Submissions July 1

Arts of the Pamlico presents:

Cypress Landing Resident Artists Virtual Show

Residents of Cypress Landing are invited to submit a maximum of 3 works of art for a virtual show that will be placed on artsofthepamilco.org.

The Arts of the Pamlico (AOP) is working in a variety of ways to continue to provide access to art and artists to customers and observers. Over the past few months AOP has been creating virtual shows and mirroring other arts council efforts to find new ways to share art work that would have hung only in their galleries.

Going forward they are likely to do both in person and virtual exhibits of each show to support artists having a bigger reach and increasing access to local and regional artwork and artists.

Join in and share the amazing art we are creating at Cypress Landing in a new way!An example of AOP’s virtual shows may be viewed at https://vimeo.com/417977962 and details for the show are below or can be found at
