The Playful Spirit


“The Playful Spirit” is a juried exhibition that evokes a sense of wonder and play. Northern California artists bring their most whimsical and imaginative works to monca, creating an atmosphere that celebrates creativity and joy. This exhibition is a perfect pairing with “My Cabinet of Curiosities” by Norma Lyon, as both shows highlight the playful and curious nature of art.


Don’t miss this exciting dual exhibition at monca! Mark your calendars and join us for a celebration of artistic curiosity and playful spirit. 


Both exhibitions will run July 11-September 1, 2024.


We look forward to seeing you there!
