Hurricane Gallery invites artists working in all media to submit their work to be considered for its summer 2017 show, scheduled to open Saturday, Aug. 5.

The gallery welcomes not only established artists, but also artists new to the exhibition scene. Gallery owner Robert Macdonald said he is never interested in showing the pretty or picturesque; he wants, “especially in this age of Trump, to show the work of artists eager to bring their special pictorial skills to confront the present difficult moment in our national life.”

Interested artists may call 701-7477; email or visit the gallery, located at 175 Quarry Road.
