42nd Annual Juried Exhibition, Durango Arts Center, Durango, CO. June 1- June 30, 2018. 41 artists included from 300 submissions. I had one sculpture included in the exhibition.
The Durango Arts Center is pleased to provide a professional juried exhibit for artists working in all media. In its 42nd year, the Annual Juried Exhibit continues to be a national competition in order to broaden creative expression, both in and outside of our community, that accepts multi-media and installation work and provides an online platform for submissions. The juror of this year’s exhibit, Josie Lopez, also provided free onsite portfolio reviews and critique to any artist regardless of their acceptance into the exhibit. Josie Lopez is currently the curator a 516 ARTS. She received her B.A. in History and M.A. in teaching from Brown University. She completed an M.A. in Art History at the University of New Mexico and her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. She was a Jacob K. Javits fellow from 2009-2013.
"Durango Art Center’s 42nd Juried Exhibition includes a wide range of media including ceramics, collage, photography, drawing, fiber arts, mixed media, painting, printmaking and sculpture. With nearly three hundred submissions, the diversity of work submitted by local and national artists provided for a difficult yet exciting challenge. Particular trends such as the intersection of materials, engagement with the idea of place, and works that contend with particular social issues emerged as the selection process progressed. The exhibition is decidedly contemporary and reflects an exciting moment in the arts filled with questioning and experimentation that will undoubtedly continue to expand conceptions of what art is." - Josie Lopez
