The opening reception will be held at 3:00 pm, Sunday, August 20, 2017, as part of The J’s One Voice, One Vibe, Our Community celebration. This celebration will reflect the renewal and rebuilding of the Meyerland area after the area was hit by floods twice within a ten-month period. The J has commissioned an original anthem-like musical composition to reflect the resilience of the greater Meyerland area, which will debut at 4:00 pm. We will then return to the gallery to continue our celebration. Chapbooks will be provided at that time. A literary reading will be held on a different date. WiVLA members are invited to submit one 2D piece and/or 1 literary piece which reflects this theme. This work should be secular in nature, with broad appeal.
