Artists may provide their own bin or request a bin from the Lone Tree Arts Center prior to the opening reception. Our bins are limited so they will be given out on a first come first serve basis so put your request in early. Artists must bring bin work on the day of the reception, October 11th, 2023. We ask that all artists provide a bio and details on how attendees can view additional works and get in contact with them. A 3-ring binder will be made available with this information throughout the exhibit.  Artwork may not be removed by the artist or the purchaser prior to the end of the exhibition.
