Spencertown Academy Arts Center Presents Juried Regional Art Exhibit
Spencertown, New York—Spencertown Academy Arts Center presents its sixth annual Regional Juried Art Show. On Saturday, October 5, there will be an opening reception from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and the exhibit will remain on display through October 27. This year’s theme is “In the Moment” and the guest juror is Katharine T. Carter. Gallery hours will be Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free and most of the artworks are for sale; a portion of the proceeds benefits the Academy.
“This show is about how an artist, inspired by his or her process and vision, transforms the ephemeral into an enduring work of art. We had a great response this year from many artists throughout the region,” says Leslie Gabosh, member of the Academy Curatorial Committee and this year’s coordinator of the Juried Regional Show. “The variety and quality of the selected works make for an exciting exhibit. Join us for the opening and meet the artists, whose work includes painting, sculpture, collage, drawing, mixed media, and ceramics.”
Juror Katharine T. Carter works as an artist representative, furthering the careers of artists across the country, and working with institutions, galleries, and critics to create synergistic and interdependent solutions for success in today’s contemporary art world. She has booked over 1,000 one-person exhibitions for her clients at museums, art centers, and college and university galleries. She selected pieces by 69 artists for “In the Moment” and will bestow first, second, and two honorable mention places before the exhibit opening.
