Arlington, VA – In August, the Focus Gallery features “Hiding in Plain Sight,” an Arlington Artists Alliance members juried show. The required theme asks each artist to conceal a particular icon somewhere in their completed work. This “Where’s Waldo”-esque theme engages the viewer to discover the hidden symbol. The range of media is wide: oil, acrylic, watercolor, patinated copper, quilted textile and other mixed media. Jean Gill, AWS, NWS, is the juror for this themed show.
