Culture is defined by the beliefs and customs of a group, place, or time. In this design exhibition we are exploring how culture has inspired the graphic design artists’ work. This could be inspiration from a nostalgic moment, an annual tradition, a city, their lineage, friends or family.
Come see how each artists expresses their definition of culture.

Black Amethyst Tattoo Gallery will be curating the Saturday night Art Show, November 19th 7-11pm. Join us as we present new works from 30 artists addressing the theme Heroes vs. Villains in film and literature.
This will not be your typical Hero vs Villain show. You won't find any comic book characters here! We have asked the artists to “think outside the box” and find characters from all genres of film and literature, to create a unique mix of classic characters to the more obscure. You will see Heroes and Villains from films you grew up watching, to films and books your children have grown to love.
This show will have works of art from local artists as well as a few out of town artists, ranging from oil paintings, mixed medium, colored pencil, embroidery, acrylics and more!
