The (Anti) Valentine Show returns with a vengeance! More local artists than ever have responded to the call for art (un)inspired by romance. From anti-love, to anti-hypocricy, anti-commercialization, anti-objectivization, and more, The (Anti) Valentine Show promises to reflect the heart-felt to heart-wrenching angst of our time and place.

CALL for Art: The (Anti) Valentine Show

The (Anti)Valentine Show returns! Works presents an open call to artists (un)inspired by romance. In this non-juried exhibit, we anticipate artistic viewpoints to range from just a tiny bit less than love to all-out war; from the painfully real to outrageous fantasy. One work only from each artist. Painting, drawing, photography, video, sculpture, mixed media, etc. There are no fees to enter this exhibit.

Deliver art:
Saturday or Sunday, January 20 or 21, noon to 4pm
Works, 365 South Market Street, downtown San José
Shipped artwork must arrive by Friday, January 19
