Theme: What brings you peace in your backyard? Either real or imaginary, urban or rural, micro (e.g., blade of grass) or macro (e.g., expansive view of a lake). What brings you tranquility? The color palette, or the light in morning or evening. Let your imagination or your photo collection inspire you to create something beautiful for the hospital setting for patients and their families. We are looking for a variety of artwork styles that express peace and tranquility whether in the very abstract or somewhere on the spectrum of realism.


The sale runs from June 15, 2022 through July 13, 2022.
