Update regarding COVID-19: Our Being Scene exhibition is currently closed, and all associated events have been cancelled.
You can still view all artworks in the exhibition online by clicking here. Most works are also available for sale. With many artists losing work because of COVID-19, any additional income is extremely helpful at this time. 100% of the sale price set by the artists goes back to the artists (we add a small admin fee to help cover our costs), so every sale goes directly to support the artists.
Workman Arts presents BEING SCENE, a sweeping exhibition encompassing more than 100 artworks by 66 artists. These artists give shape to compelling ideas and narratives, covering a wide range of conceptual and material approaches from diverse experiences.
Dani Crosby – Fine Artist, Arts Educator, & Community Collaborator

Special thanks to the Norman and Marsha Paul Family Trust for supporting Being Scene.
