“As an artist who is learning the trade of tattooing, I find the intersection of the traditions of fine art and tattoo art to be incredibly interesting.” – Kyle Pryce, Eternal Tattoos Inc., Livonia

The Northville Art House presents this all-media juried exhibition to showcase contemporary artworks and artists that push the boundaries of art imagery, practices, and theory. Artists are encouraged to explore and employ new techniques, technologies, and media to create compelling two- and three-dimensional artworks. Boundaries to consider include those set by traditional techniques, materials, concepts, art history, genre, subject matter, personal, societal etc. Significant consideration will be given to artworks that defy expectation, may provoke strong responses, or challenge social norms.
