Ends on March 11, 2019


Usually “surf and turf” refers to a meal consisting of a meat and seafood. For this exhibition, we are simply using the phrase to playfully allude to the area where land and sea meet. Whether it’s a beach, an island, or a rocky cliff, these places hold a special meaning for many. They are homes to specific landmarks like lighthouses and piers. 

Tamarack’s David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is seeking original two and three dimensional work, of any media that, figuratively and metaphorically, represents the theme of any space where a body of land encounters a body of water; including, but not limited to oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands, ponds, and even puddles.

This exhibition is only open to Tamarack juried artists. For more information about how to become a Tamarack artist, visit this link.
