Northern Exposure encourages U.P. artists to create new artworks and allows them to showcase their pieces.

Artwork in the show ranges from traditional to experimental in any medium, including photography, water color and colored pencils. Pieces are judged based on three criteria — creativity, originality and craftsmanship. The winners and awards will be announced at 8 p.m.
