Last Chance! August Open Exhibit Closes Sunday

Time is running out to view our August Open Exhibit!

Our juror for this month’s exhibit was Stephanie Midon, curatorial assistant at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC.

The exhibit is unthemed, but Midon did spy lots of flora, fauna, landscapes — and three seashells. (See if you can find them on our walls.) Here’s what else she had to say in our juror’s dialogue:

  • Drawings and watercolors made a strong showing in the submissions this month.
  • Globalism reappeared among different artists, who created images both inside and outside the United States.

  • Color played a role in the show’s most successful works. Far Away by Deron Decesare, the best-in-show pastel, stood out with an unexpected blue tone in the subject’s skin, and Rouge Retro by M.M. Panas brought a powerful red statement as Best in Show.

  • If this show had a theme, it would be “community.” Because each artwork is a reflection of the artist, Midon said, even this unthemed show became a collection of self-portraits.

The August Open Exhibit is on view through Sunday, September 3.

Gallery hours:
Monday–Saturday: 10:00 am–6:00 pm
Thursday: 10:00 am–9:00 pm
Sunday: 12:00 noon–6:00 pm
