Wanderlust (n): a strong desire to travel

For some, wanderlust manifests itself as an unquenchable thirst to explore life beyond your comfort zone. For others, it’s as simple as reading a book, taking a walk at lunch or going left instead of a right on the way to work.

Wherever your wanderlust takes you - by foot, pedal, engine or “other” -  we want to see it!

Dickerman Prints Gallery invites you to submit up to 3 images that relate to the theme of Wanderlust ... using whatever definition most resonates with you. Accepted entries will be displayed during a monthlong group exhibition, with an Artist's Reception on Thursday, June 15, 2017.

Not all those who wander are lost
