As ambassadors of hope, the community shall paint the year with the most inspiring colors - Hues of Hope.

The Annual Members Juried Exhibit had 93 participants in total and was sent to International Artist Jurors. Of the 93, 55 members were accepted for the exhibition however, due to the constraints of quarantine guidelines during this pandemic, the physical exhibit will be at the gallery area of LRI Design Plaza which the owners graciously allowed on September 2, 2021, 2PM. However, there will be no formal opening of the exhibit as this will be done virtually. The public may be able to visit and view the paintings of the 55 juried exhibitors for the duration of the convention. They can also purchase the paintings should they wish to do so.
