A month-long small works exhibit curated by The Southern.


Submission Deadline: November 1 at 11:59PM



Art has always been a cathartic means of communication. While it is a common experience to fall in love with a certain artwork, scientists now have evidence that shows the brain reacts similarly when viewing artwork as when falling in love! It has always had the ability to serve as a source of happiness, light-heartedness, and joy. When the going gets tough, whether it’s in your career, the unfortunate political and social climate, or even your love life, it’s important to have imagery in your life-spaces that brings a calm over you; that part of your art collection that when you look at it, stimulates a positive chemical response and releases the feel good chemical dopamine.
Get Well Soon will be a group show of feel-good small works, and we are seeking artists who want to create work that will brighten someone’s life.
This exhibit will open on ‘Black Friday,’ November 24, and run through December 31 2017.
