Beware the Beasts Below is a tribute show to sea creatures, both mythical and actual.  The deep sea holds a mystery, darkness, danger, and beauty to it.  We are seeking work that embodies those elements, while showcasing ancient sea mythologies and real-life deep sea discoveries in the modern age. From mermaids and sea serpents, to jellyfish, cephalopods, and sharks, Beware the Beasts Below.
