the open west 2015

call for entries will be posted early December


…TOW is not merely a collection of independent visions, and personalities.  It is a complex exhibition, with multiple components, which can offer many surprises to its visitors… what creates TOW’s vitality is the sense of invitation, to explore for the enjoyment of exploration. Robert Luzar
