The Lake Country Art Gallery is looking for submissions for its upcoming exhibitions.

Another Conversation, to be curated by guest curator Lee Claremont, is about responding to a previous idea or opinion, said LCAG curator Wanda Lock.

“Whether the conversation is about an event, a political movement, a time in art history, post colonialism, feminism, gender equality, the environment or cats vs dogs; whether the conversation is a response to your art making process, about an event, a political movement, etc., this exhibition is open ended,” said Lock. “What do you feel deserves more consideration? What subject, question, debate or discussion do you feel needs further examination?”

Submissions for the Another Conversation will be accepted at the gallery March 30, 31 and April 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The gallery is also receiving submissions for its Art Through the Ages: Intergenerational Exhibition, which will be accepted at the gallery Feb. 23, 34 and 25. The exhibition runs from March 1 to April 1.
