“Ritual: Art and Withcraft” Exhibition (in person)

This exhibition will be exploring the all too important act of Ritual all peoples, no matter what religion/faith practice/culture, have rituals in their daily lives. It is the grounding of these practices that is one of the pillars of Witchcraft, and in Creative Arts it is no different. Through Ritual, we ask for artists to also explore the intertwined relationship of Art and Witchcraft, and how they both reflect on each other.
