Stranger Than Fiction


Merriam-Webster’s word of the year in 2016 was surreal. A concept bequeathed to the public by a quirky group of Frenchmen.  Surreal literally means beyond real and conjures images of the bizarre and the unusual, the unbelievable and uncanny, as well as freakish, unearthly dreamscapes; worlds that are truly Stranger than Fiction.  We invite artists to explore the fantastic and the strange. It’s time to channel your inner Dali, Picasso, Miro, Magritte or Giacometti and juxtapose reality with the impossible!

We will be accepting artwork for this show on Friday, March 9th from 11-6 and Saturday, March 10th from 11-5.

The juror will be Doug Freed, a working artist and art professional in Mid-Missouri:

Opening Reception: Friday, March 16th, 6-8 PM @ CAL

“The objective of Surrealism is to make use of the dream, which will open the way to the Great Mystery of Life in the cause of his own art.” - Nathalia Brodskaia
