Sleepy Hollow – Call For Artists

Our annual ‘Sleepy Hollow” show celebrates the blurring of the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, and Halloween – a time of jubilation and superstition. Come celebrate with us as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, and usher in the winter season with art, festivity, costumes, and treats.
