OGDENSBURG -- The Frederic Remington Art Museum will hold its 2017 Members' Juried Art Exhibit May 20-Sept. 27.
In the 2017 Members' Juried Art Exhibit, the museum's member artists are invited to submit up to three digital photos of their art. One work from each artist is guaranteed acceptance.
The theme for the 2017 Members' Juried Art Exhibit is Reflection. The relationship between submitted art and the theme may be creative and inspired, and need not be literal.
Last year’s members’ exhibit featured 66 participating artists and the museum hopes to build on this success in 2017.
This year accomplished painter Anne Swiderski, who has exhibited with the museum in the past, is a juror. Swiderski was born in Montreal and grew up living on the outskirts of a small northern town in Ontario where rivers, bogs and marshes cut through large tracts of boreal forest, which left deep impressions on her.
She attended the Ottawa School of Art and Ottawa University, and has exhibited locally, in Montreal, and in New York State. Her paintings can be found in private collections mainly across Canada, but also in the United States and in Germany.
The juror chooses from digital representations of up to three artworks, and awards prizes for best in show, 2nd and 3rd place. A Public’s Choice award will be chosen by visitor ballots cast throughout the exhibition. The prize, a framed print of Frederic Remington’s White Wings 1894, will go to the winner.
An artist who is not yet a museum member may join and submit an entry to the exhibit. April 11th is the deadline for submission of digital images, payment and artist information. Artists can submit through the website at www.fredericremington.org, via email to [email protected], or on CD sent directly to the museum at 303 Washington St., Ogdensburg, NY 13669.
Works in the exhibit may be offered for sale, with one third of the price benefiting the museum.
