A Midsummer Night's Dream Art Exhibition

Art Exhibition Presented by Standard Collective and EGAD! Art Lab
AND Dinner with the artists at Concepts on Highland

MELBOURNE, FL. Friday, August 17, 6-11pm, EGAD Art Lab and Standard Collective team up for an exhibition of art where dreams become reality... Curated by A. E. Soland.

A Midsummer Night's Dream asks, “What motivates you? What terrifies you? What turns you on? What makes you laugh?”

The show features many forms of art, including painting, photography, glitch-video, and more. “Dreams are something that each person has, but yet are all different,” says curator Anthony Soland. “We all have insecurities, fantasies and nightmares and, as an artist, there is nothing more liberating than putting those thoughts out there in the real world on a canvas."
The exhibit runs through mid-September. EGAD Art Lab's regular hours are Monday through Saturday, 10-6, and by appointment.
