Where one door closes, another one opens. Such is the case with The Red Door Project, a community art gallery with its first exhibit on Final Friday. Taking place in the former location of the Joseph Williams Home, Over-the-Rhine's newest tenant features a gallery for the artist in all of us.

Regardless if you have formal training or are a creative hobbyist, everyone is welcome to participate in The Red Door Project. Art can be made as 2D or 3D using any type of medium, with all submissions following one rule: modeling their art after the specific monthly theme. The word for February is "Cycle" - a series of events that are regularly repeated in the same order.

All works must be turned in the Saturday before Final Friday to allow for the pieces to be set up for the show. A team of curators will also assign an auction price for each piece, and if sold, the artist will receive a portion of the proceeds. The deadline for February submissions is February 22 from 11:00am-3:00pm.

Not sure how to "cycle?" Instead, take part in The Red Door Project's photo contest by submitting a picture of a red door from your neighborhood. Ten doors will be selected to decorate the space. If you'd like to participate in March's assignment, check out the gallery on Final Friday where they will announce the theme for next month.

The Red Door Project is open at
1232 Vine Street on February 28 from 6-10 p.m.
