Gallery X invites you to submit artwork for Urban X-Ploration, an exhibition inspired by the urban landscape. While traditional landscapes focus on the natural aspects of the world around us, urban exploration focuses on the manmade; structures and what may be found inside them. Being October artists are welcome (but not required) to submit work that focuses on the gritty, dark, or spooky elements found when eXploring a city.
