Art Contests and Exhibitions

The Cottage hosts themed parties such as Mardi Gras in February and Dia de Los Muertos in October.

One of the best ways to promote creativity is to sponsor art contests and art exhibits.   The shows promote our fellow artists in the community, and broaden their exposure as well as provide a wealth of art options for art lovers and collectors.
