The pirate-themed exhibits will feature artwork from literature and film to movie posters, books prints and other forms.

This is a family oriented event, so submissions must be appropriate. Artists are asked to provide easels or pedestals to display their pieces.

Submissions must be made for acceptance no later than Friday, Aug. 5, to Loo by e-mail at

Hung Sau “Assassin” Loo Ting hails from the province of Canton, China. During his travels and studies with the ancient mystics, Loo said he developed an obsession for ancient weaponry and a keen eye for all arts. Inspired by the beauty that surrounded him, Loo started painting and using odd metals and distressed substances for his artwork.
