Making A Mark is a celebration of self-expression and its power to encourage and inspire others to do the same.  The act of creation, of self-belief, begins with making a mark.  It requires courage and a willingness to follow one’s inner visions to a fully realized creative outcome.  From brushstrokes to repurposed textiles, the artists in this exhibition make their mark in a dizzying array of media.  From the quiet, rhythmic patterns of Sue Lawty to the striking visual storytelling of Candace Hill, Making a Mark presents an engaging exhibit of local and international artists sharing their artistic view of the world.
