The juried exhibition Take Me With You: An Exhibition Without Bordersasks artists to "pick a special place and take us there with you. Embody that place and its significance to your life in a work of visual or literary art. How would you depict your favorite childhood hiding place or a solitary walk on the beach such that it resonates and expresses its influence in your life? A front stoop drenched in sunlight, the neighborhood skate park at dusk, an empty downtown street." CoPA members Martha Coaty, Michael Havice and Dale Van Minsel have work in this exhibition.

Submissions close December 7th!
