June 2022 Exhibit at KIFA

Do you remember your first day of school? Your introduction to riding on a school bus? The excitement of the 1969 moon landing? That favorite concert, or your high school graduation? Wedding? First child? Or, on a sad note, the day an iconic figure was killed or the tragedy of 9/11? These are a few suggestions that you might be interested in to sketch, paint, construct collage or, perhaps, carve a sculpture out of stone or shape something out of clay. The theme is limitless so don those thinking caps and pick up that paintbrush or knife and come up with a Moment in Time that was an important and unforgettable occasion in your life. This is the theme of our June show at KIFA, and it promises to be an exhibition of creativity and remembrance.

All media will be accepted and, although it is open to all artists, the show will be judged by a knowledgeable and experienced professional. KIFA has not sponsored this theme before, so in addition to your attendance to support your local artists while meeting old and/or new friends over refreshments, we will be holding a raffle for a gift card. So please join us for our Opening Reception at the Art House on Thursday evening June 2 from 5 to 7:30. You won’t be disappointed!
