Submissions are now open for Manhattan’s Pleiades Gallery first National Exhibition of American Art.

We are interested in seeing artist’s interpretations and perceptions of unconventional ideas, dreamscapes and elaborate fantasy worlds. Jurors for this exhibition are members of Pleiades Gallery: Denise Adler, Al Benkin, and Joseph O’Neill. Entry Deadline is Dec. 2. Find details at pleiadesgallery.com.
