Open Juried Fine Arts Show
The Juried Fine Arts Show will present a number of new artists to Chestertown along with the local artists you have appreciated for years. Sharon Hardin, Pat Herlihy, Linda Hall, Patty Mowell, Jody Primoff, Michael Wootton, Evie Baskin, Nancy Thomas, Dennis Young, and Barbara Zuehlke are some of the local talent juried into the show.
Outside artists include Kim Henkel, an artist based in the Taos area of New Mexico, Aina Nergaard-Nammack of Lewes, DE, sculptor Gordon Lyon of Potomac, MD, photographer Graham Slaughter of Dorchester County, MD and Carol Ashton-Hergenhan of Bensalem, PA.
The exhibit will include works by both the juror and the judge. Show Juror David Grafton is an internationally-known painter with works in collections around the US and in Canada, Japan and Europe. Show Judge Mary McCoy has an academic background in Studio Art and has written extensively on art for many publications including the Washington Post and most recently as an art reviewer for local publications. She is also an accomplished sculptor specializing in found object installations and as a collaborator with her husband Howard McCoy.
The judge will present prizes at the Awards Ceremony on Sepember 15 (1:00 – 4:00pm). These prizes include “Best in
Show” and “Juror’s Choice” and several “Awards of Excellence” and “Honorable Mentions”. Five medium specific prizes will be given for: watermedia painting; painting in oil or acrylic on canvas or board; pastel; photography; and a work in drawing, hand-pulled prints or mixed media. There will be one theme prize, “Best Representation of the Eastern Shore,” sponsored by Bob Ramsey of Finishing Touch in Chestertown.
