March - Winged Messengers
Sponsored by Ukiah Peregrine Audubon Club
Birds are ubiquitous on our planet, and the number of species is astounding. They have been represented since the beginning of civilization as harbingers of change, messengers from the gods and spirits of our ancestors. Birds also connect people to their natural community, to their culture and to their stewardship responsibility.
What is it about birds that captivates your imagination? Use any medium, in any number of dimensions, to show us what you see.

April- DREAMS OF PEACE, HOPES FOR OUR FUTURE
open to high school artists- Laura in charge
Sponsored by Phil Gary and friends
Our world is a stressful place right now- with hate, conflicts, isolation and environmental devastation facing us at every turn. People of all races, cultures, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations and political persuasions are hurting and seeking solutions. Can you see a road to peace?
Tell us your own story. Show us your dreams through your art. How do you envision peace in your future? What does peace look like to you? What does peace feel like to you? Is the peace you envision external or internal, all-encompassing or yours alone?

Since 1970 June has been the month when LGBTQ+ people, their families and friends have gathered to march in demonstrations of pride. Celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS.
The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
How would you like to honor the concept of PRIDE with your art? Work in any medium, both two and three-dimensional, will be welcome.
