Reading: Juried Exhibitions

I was glad to see Alyson Stanfield’s email newsletter topic this week about Assessing juried exhibit opportunities as we prepare for our December 10 Artist Survival Kit panel discussing Juried Shows & Competitions

Alyson asks insightful questions about the potential career and artistic impact through juried exhibitions. Rather than passively entering your artwork into the most timely (or convenient) opportunities that arise, she pushes you to find out more about the benefits and evaluate what you hope to gain. I appreciate that she gives no easy answers, but expects artists to consider each show for themselves.

The OVAC ASK panel will include the jurors themselves-- curators and gallerists who do the selecting-- talking about how they review artwork. Watch for more posts about juried shows in the upcoming weeks.
