Exhibition Description
Whether we are passing down familial folklore at a reunion or sharing stories over at the water cooler, there are many legends, fables and fabrications that are begging to be shared and turned into long-lasting works of art. These “stories” can be fact or fiction in depiction and can be anything from a local legend to historical happening. Tamarack’s David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery is inviting young West Virginia artists (Grades K-12) to submit two- and three-dimensional pieces that represent the fine art of tall tales!

Artwork must be ready to hang or install upon delivery. Pieces that are unframed will be fixed to the wall with an adhesive. Protect your work accordingly. Students can submit up to 6 artworks. If work is selected, it will be displayed in Tamarack's Youth Art Gallery October 2 – November 7, 2021.
