Theme

The theme this year is: Outside these four walls …

If pandemic lockdowns taught us anything, it is that we have a new appreciation for our outdoor spaces. Our daily walks kept us sane as we escaped our homes for brief adventures outside.

This exhibition is dedicated to the great outdoors. Show us what you appreciate about nature, open space, parks, recreation, plants and wildlife. Maybe it is all about the view you have through your window or your own little patch of dirt.
