The Scarab Club invites submissions for the Blooms, Bugs, Beasts, an annual all-media exhibition which is open to all artists. The theme of the exhibition is flowers, insects, animals, landscapes, and seascapes. The purpose of the exhibition is to recognize the diversity and achievement of artists whose work shows creativity of concept, excellence of design and expertise of media; to display these works to regional audiences and to be an educational opportunity for students.
