Southern Exposure's seventh annual entry fee-free juried exhibition features current work by northern California artists, and invites entries as a therapeutic response and remedy to downsizing in the art world of the '90s. The exhibition draws hundreds of entries every year and serves as an important survey of northern California art. As always, the theme is open to interpretation, and artists are encouraged to stretch their imaginations and search their unconscious in considering the possibilities. Scale and subject matter may vary, and topics could include miniatures, psychotherapy, downsizing, dwindling personal space, and diminishing resources.
