Event Description

Craig Downs and Koken Art Factory Present


Artist Craig Downs and The Koken Art Factory cordially invite you to submit artwork for our September show entitled Vincent.  Vincent van Gogh is one of the most influential artists of all time.  His works have inspired thousands of artists since his death and still challenge the common views on beauty, individuality, and style in art today.  This show will be an opportunity for you, as an artist, to share your interpretation of, or your inspiration from, the great works of Vincent van Gogh.  Whether you are inspired to re-create one his great works, or to produce something in your own style and medium which has been inspired by his work, you are invited and encouraged to submit your artwork for this unique showing opportunity.
