TLO at Hodge Podge

The Layered Onion (TLO) has partnered with Hodge Podge Madison to adorn its walls with art created by our community of artists with lived mental and emotional health experiences.

The space will host rotating exhibitions with pieces available for sale on the TLO Shop.

Theme: Windows

Our next gallery showing at Hodge Podge focuses on Windows – however abstract, direct, or indirectly you are inspired.

Your entry should muse on the concept of windows, either figuratively, metaphorically, or however you would like to approach it! Perhaps you will play with perspective from behind (or in front of) an open or closed window. What’s on the other side? Only you know.

Distortions or clarity, what do you see? What should we see?

We look forward to seeing what you come up with and what you send in!

This theme was chosen from multiple entries at our last in-person event – thanks for the wonderful suggestions!
