Though often divisive and inflammatory, we can't avoid politics in today's world. The intrinsic beliefs and opinions that shape us as human beings can almost always be seen in a political light. Las Laguna Gallery seeks art that can express all things political, regardless of party or belief systems. 

The artwork may be literal of a politician or political issue or opinion, or it may be figurative and interpretive. It's political, but we value all beliefs and the manner in which these can be expressed, artistically.

This exhibition hopes to explore our political discourse with the use of imagery to make the point of our current state of the nation. Artists making serious political work, art that is reflective of our times, or political statire are invited to apply. 

We invite and encourage artists of ALL ages to participate and look forward to seeing the creativity of your work. 

All local, national, and international artists, professional and amateur, are encouraged to submit their works for this art exhibition.
