The 2018 Compassion Art Show will be held during the month of October at the Flydragon Studios on 17th Street and O’Neil Ave.
This show is open to all ages and abilities. We would like works which express your idea of compassion for all life.
A helpful definition of compassion is, “Being concerned about the suffering or misfortunes of another and being willing to do something about it”.
This exhibit will provide opportunity for everyone to express their vision. Would you like to nurture compassion in our community? Up to 3 entries per person, 2D entries should be no more than size 16” x 20”. 3D entries can also be shown. There will be a cost of $10.00 for the first entry and $20.00 for 3 entries. This will cover expenses involved in running the show. We would especially encourage students to express their ideas in visual art and/or in haiku or short poems. These will be hung with the other entries. There is no entry fee for students under 18 years of age. Artworks sold will be subject to a commission of 25% for Flydragon Studios. There will be no commission taken during the 2nd. Thursday Artwalk. Each artist will sign a waiver for insurance. Fly Dragon Studios is open Wednesday-Saturday 12-6pm. A juror will decide on awards.

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical illusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty” Albert Einstein
