Hey Diddle Diddle....Artists interpretation of nursery rhymes and fairy tales.

Niza Knoll Gallery in Denver, Colorado, is pleased to invite artists who interpret nursery rhymes or fairy tales in their art making, to submit their work to this juried exhibit. This is the second exhibition of of Hey Diddle Diddle... We loved the fascinating stories and marvelous art we got in the first regional exhibit in 2015. This year we are also including fairy tales. We were encouraged, by many of you, to do it again. We found that artists loved the nursery rhymes and fairy tales as children and had fun interpreting them as adults. This exhibit is for adults not children, so your interpretation is wide open. I am encouraging you to submit your best pieces and tell us your rhymes and tales. 

The exhibition opens June 15, 2018 and run through July 28th. It is a great time to get your art shown in Denver’s fabulous Art District on Santa Fe. Submissions will be juried by a blind-juried method.

Awards will be given to Best of Show, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
