October 20 thru December 22, 2022
Call For Entries: The Robeson Art Guild (RAG) is accepting entries for Hang the Halls, our final exhibition of 2022. Our goal is to Guild (pun intended!) the Halls and Walls of two galleries with the best of everything! Join us in celebrating the creative process during the chaos of the season. We want our residents and our visitors to experience the excellence of our artists and to have ample opportunities to view and purchase art for their own pleasure and for holiday gifts.
All art submissions for the exhibition are to be made at the Robeson Art Guild House. The Hang the Halls exhibition will be held in two locations. The Robeson Art Guild will select, and transport pieces as needed for exhibition at Gallery II. The locations are:
