Our customs add depth to who we are as people. Our history, heritage, culture, traditions all vary from one person to the next. That being said, what’s new in customs or what customs make you who you are or are important to you? Our call seeks to further this exploration of the traditional definition of customs in contemporary practice. Works in traditional and new media are invited, as are the freshest and freest ideas.


The space is in the office of the Danville Business Alliance and has a large wall dedicated to showing regional artists work.
