OGDENSBURG -- The Frederic Remington Art Museum, 303 Washington Street, is seeking artists for the 2013 Members’ Juried Art Exhibit. The exhibit will be on display May 18 to Sept. 7.

Museum's member artists may submit up to three digital photos of their art. Open to artists everywhere, one work from each artist is guaranteed acceptance.Firepit by Gregg Fedchak, acrylic on canvasFirepit by Gregg Fedchak, acrylic on canvas

An artist who is not yet a museum member may join with an entry into the exhibit. The deadline for submission of digital images via email to lafo@fredericremington.org or on CD, with entry form and payment is Apr. 18.

The exhibit will open with a reception Saturday, May 18.

The juror, abstract artist Gregg Fedchak, chooses from digital representations of up to three artworks, and also 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 1890 painting, Antoine’s Cabin, will go to the winner.

Fedchak is a Boonville native who has spent most of his life in the North Country. A graduate of St. Lawrence University, his prize-winning work is of the increasingly fragmented world. Fedchak’s art has been selected for a dozen juried shows, including “Made In New York” at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Gallery in Auburn. He has had solo exhibits at the Rome Art & Community Center and in the Cogar Gallery at Herkimer County Community College.

Works in the exhibit may be offered for sale, with one third of the price benefiting the museum. For more information and a prospectus, contact lafo@fredericremington.org, or download the prospectus at www.fredericremington.org, or call 393-2425.
