All mediums are permitted including paintings, drawings, sculptures, pottery, photography, crochet, knits, quilts, beaded art, and mixed media. There will also be a Christmas tree in the exhibition space for a display of angel ornament artwork.

Artists may submit up to 3 entries to be considered for the show. Artwork presented in the exhibition will be selected by a panel of judges. Preference will be given to entries that display beautiful craftsmanship and unique use of material.
