The Arts Station is calling for artist submissions for their upcoming mask design competition and virtual presentation. This show will showcase a selection of artists of varying experience levels. The masks can be executed in a range of mediums and styles, so long as they are an original design. This will be an excellent opportunity for artists to share their COVID-friendly attire and bring some creativity to PPE. Artists are welcome to submit only the mask design, or an original mask that they have created.

September can feel like the most anticipated goodbye to a deliciously golden season. Summer is a season so anticipated here that we are grieving its departure before it’s fully over! Summer, sweet, sweet summertime. As we dawn our masks and crack open the books for another academic year, I remind you to reminisce, to soak up those September rays, and remember how life sometimes can feel perfectly in bloom.
