Join us in celebrating the nuances of domestic life, where mundane moments transform into profound expressions. Submit your artwork by February 1st, 2024 and contribute to the narrative of “Inner Sanctuaries.” This exhibition aims to illuminate the significance of our daily surroundings, creating a shared exploration of the familiar and the intimate.
