Fear Exhibition (Fredericksburg, VA) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] LibertyTown Arts Workshop in Fredericksburg, VA, announces a call for artists for Fear, a national juried exhibition. This is a show all about what goes bump in the night or sneaks up on us. It’s about how you feel with your toes on the edge of a cliff or when you see a creepy crawly on your bed. It can be anything that makes your palms sweat, your stomach turn, and your heart race. For the month of October, show what you fear.
