“Think outside of the Box” Exhibition is a great way to show Pocono Mountain Arts Council’s talented members and a fun competition where members can show how to create an art piece with an unexpected element chosen by the show chair. 

Various mediums will be displayed like acrylics, oils, watercolors, mixed media, photography, and woodwork.  The Pocono Mountain Arts Council invites the community to visit the exhibition and vote for the “Think Outside the Box Artwork”.  This year’s theme for “Think Outside the Box” is a spool of thread.  Will be interesting to see what the artists will produce!

Pocono Mountain Arts Council is very pleased and honored to have such a fine artist, Jody Singer, from Origins Gallery in Stroudsburg judging the show.
