VOX IX is Vox Populi’s ninth annual juried exhibition, featuring more than 50 works by 45 artists from across the country. This year’s exhibition was juried by artist Hilary Harkness and writer Hunter Braithwaite. The exhibition will showcase new works in painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video, and sound.
This exhibition is always a highlight of Vox Populi’s season, and this year features artists from Rockland, Maine – to Pontiac, Michigan – to San Francisco, California, with plenty of local talent as well. The artists were chosen from a pool of 400 artists who submitted to this year’s open call.
