The Women’s Caucus for Art Colorado Chapter invites artists to submit work for a group exhibition exploring the theme of “atmosphere”. From the physical environment and emotional to the abstract and ethereal, the concept of atmosphere is vast and open to interpretation.


D’Art gallery, located in the vibrant Santa Fe art district of Denver, Colorado, at 900 Santa Fe Drive, boasts a unique and dynamic space that showcases contemporary art in all its forms. The gallery's mission is to provide a platform for artists to showcase their work and inspire the community.
