Open Artist Contest at The Gillioz

The Gillioz invites you to come and explore the rich architecture and design of the historic Gillioz theatre for the Fall 2018 Open Artist Competition! From the ceilings to the carpet you can find inspiration in every corner of the building. That is why we have decided not to accept any art inspired by the chandelier or the marquee this time around. Although these are two of our proudest focal points, we want to encourage our local artists to dig deeper and discover elements in the building that may otherwise go unnoticed.
