For this year’s exhibition, the Remington Museum received 119 images submitted by 50 artists. Some of these artists have been exhibiting at the Remington since the Museum began doing juried art exhibits in 2001, and some are participating for the first time. The Museum is proud to play a meaningful role in the artistic lives of its members, and is deeply grateful for their membership support. Juror Margaret Jacobs selected 53 works to be in the exhibition, which will run through the Museum's busy summer season, until September 9th. Jacobs states, “It was a pleasure to view the work; the submissions presented an incredibly diverse and engaging group of artworks. Choosing down to the final selection was a difficult task as many of the pieces stood out for various reasons. This group of submissions had pieces that explored a variety of different areas—complex compositions, intriguing mark making, unique use of materials—which also made the awards difficult to choose. Ultimately, my goal was to create a cohesive show that offers viewers a diverse and engaging visual experience.” The public is invited to come and meet the artists at the reception, see their excellent work, and have some fun at the Museum. There will be a “best in show” prize of $100, second place prize of $75, and a third place prize of $50. The prizes will be announced during the opening reception at 3 pm. At the end of the exhibition, on September 9th, a “public’s choice” award, a museum wrapped canvas print of Remington’s, “Antoine’s Cabin,” 1890, will be announced. Anyone can vote for their favorite artwork from May 19th until September 5th, at the Museum, or on the website, www.fredericremington.org. One vote per person, please. Many of the works on display will be for sale. The exhibit will have an online gallery at www.fredericremington.org.
