The familiar phrase “a time and place for everything” is described as an appropriate and acceptable situation in which to do a thing, but it’s not appropriate here and now.  But it can also mean just as it is…a time, a place.  It could be a time of day such as early morning and a place is the beach.  The time is noon and the place is a boat ride. It can also refer to a time in the past and a place that provokes a special memory.  RAL invites its members working in 2D to showcase their special time and place.
 Any medium and style from traditional to abstract will be accepted for review.
