Art gallery hosts immigration and refugee-inspired art show

Immigration and refugee art coming to Tri-Cities

RICHLAND, Wash. - An immigration and refugee inspired art show is coming to the Tri-Cities. Drewboy Creative Art Gallery is hosting its annual State of The Union political pop up show this October.

Artist will be asked to purpose a piece based off their depiction of immigration, refugees, and climate impacts on refugees.

Each year Drewboy Creative lets the community decide the theme of the show using a Facebook Poll.

One artist said the show is a great way to respond to the political climate.

"The refugee crisis suddenly becomes something personal instead of just something I am seeing on the news," Artists Ashleigh Rogers said.

While the founder of Drewboy Creative, Davin Diez, said he looks forward to this show every year, "It provides a place for people to express themselves and a place for the community to have a positive dialogue."

The deadline to submit your art is midnight September 24 for the October 20 show. Winners from each different category will receive prizes.

If you want an early sneak peak of the gallery, or wish to showcase your art visit you can visit the submission website.
