Watering Holes:
A place for thirsty creatures to gather and quench their thirst. Parisians at a cafe, bikers at a bar, or giraffes at a river. Around the world we visit to drink and communicate; to caffeinated, hydrate, and intoxicate. MFA (Maryland Federation of Art) invites artists around the world to enter original 2D and 3D artwork in this international online only exhibition. Works selected will be displayed in MFA’s online gallery from June 1 to July 15, 2016. The exhibition’s chairs are Richard Niewerth and Wil Scott.

Deadline is May 3
