Why are we here? Is there a dark side to our conventional belief system? What is hidden when we worship at the altar of purity and chaste? This group show aims to explore these enduring questions, whether by using traditional religious or occult imagery or by creating your own visual narrative.


La Matadora Gallery
61857 Highway 62
Joshua Tree, CA


Dec. 19 – Jan. 7


We are looking for work in all mediums that illustrate this theme in any way that you see fit. The gallery is not huge, so a loose size limitation would be 30″ max for any dimension. Submit up to 3 pieces. If accepted, 1-2 will most likely be chosen. There is no submission fee. Work must be available for sale.


We’re planning on doing a soft opening Wed. Dec. 19th, with a full opening on the winter solstice which happens to fall on Fri. Dec. 21. I’m tickled that the solstice and Christmas happen to play right along with our theme.


Artists from all over may submit. However, you must be able to either deliver or ship your work so that it arrives no later than Sun. Dec. 16. Artists are responsible for either picking up or paying return postage for work that did not sell. 50/50 artist/gallery split.

Submission deadline Tues. Dec. 4. You will be notified by Thurs. Dec. 6.
