In case you missed the announcement, the theme of this year’s show is Redemption. Per Merriam-Webster, redemption is the act of making something better or more acceptable; the act of exchanging something for money, an award, etc,; or in reference to theology, the act of being saved from sin or evil. Artwork submitted for the 2015 show should revolve around the artist’s interpretation of redemption.

For further inspiration in regards to redemption, listen to Eric Reed’s lesson on redemption from our November meeting here.
