About MUSES V: We are proud to announce the next installment of our year-end, definitive group exhibit of inspiring and influential contemporary artists known as ‘Muses of Mount Helikon V.’ This annual show is an invite-only exhibit of artists from across North America, known for being large, eclectic, colorful, and featuring high-level work in the illustrative arts – a loose term encompassing portraiture, figurework, illustration, and narrative, imaginative artwork.
The Muses were Greek goddesses of inspiration said to dwell upon Mount Helikon. In accordance with this classical myth, Muses has no restriction on theme or concept, but rather serves as an encouragement for artists to show their newest and most expressive personal works.
