Step into the past while embracing the future in "Out with the NEW & In with the OLD," a captivating art exhibition where tradition meets innovation. Rediscover forgotten treasures as old artworks, long tucked away in storage, are brought back to life with new vitality. Alternatively, artists may also breathe new life into their works of the past, infusing them with contemporary flair and fresh perspectives.

This exhibition celebrates the timeless allure of history and tradition, inviting artists to submit existing pieces from their archives, dust them off, and give them a chance to shine once more. There's no date limitation on submissions and they don't have to be new work—whether it's a cherished work from years past or a brand-new creation with a nod to their old works, all are welcome.

"Out with the NEW & In with the OLD" offers a dynamic fusion of the classic and the contemporary. Join us for an exploration of artistic evolution, where the past informs the present and the future awaits with open arms.
