The Frederic Remington Art Museum Call to Artists: Deadline Approaching

for 2016 Members' Juried Art Exhibit

 

Last updated 5/2/2016 at 3:28pm



The Frederic Remington Art Museum Ogdensburg, NY wants to remind artists that the submission deadline for their 2016 Members' Juried Art Exhibit is April 13th. This exhibit will be on display May 21-September 11, 2016.

Last year, the exhibit included 50 artists, new and returning. This year's entries so far suggest a similar mix, and we hope for bigger and better. Becoming a member is easy, by calling the museum or visiting the website fredericremington.org.

In the 2016 Members' Juried Art Exhibit, the museum's member artists are invited to submit up to three digital photos of their art. This exhibit is open to artists everywhere, and one work from each artist is guaranteed acceptance, it's the museum's most inclusive juried art exhibit. The exhibit is on view during the museum's peak tourist season, so it gets maximum exposure.

This year the museum is trying something different, a themed exhibit. The theme for the 2016 Members' Juried Art Exhibit is Water. The relationship between submitted art and the theme may be creative and inspired, and need not be literal.

The juror chooses from digital representations of up to three artworks, and also awards prizes for “best in show,” 2nd and 3rd place. A “Public’s Choice” award will be chosen by visitor ballots cast throughout the exhibition. The prize, a museum wrapped canvas reproduction of Frederic Remington’s Boat House at Ingleneuk ca. 1904, will go to the winner.

The juror is Catherine Tedford who received a B.A. in Art from SUNY Potsdam in 1980 and an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1983. After working in commercial, academic, and non-profit galleries in Boston for several years, she returned to northern New York to direct the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery at St. Lawrence University. She teaches occasional courses on artists’ books and street art, and she helped develop a paper making studio called Zone 4. Ms. Tedford has overseen the construction of digital image archives from SLU’s permanent collection ranging from Canadian Inuit prints, drawings, and carvings to West African textiles and Vietnam War-era photographs. She also collects street art ephemera from around the world and writes about those materials on her

research blog, Stickerkitty.

An artist who is not yet a museum member may join with their entry into the exhibit. The deadline for submission of digital images via email to lafo@fredericremington.org or on CD, entry form and payment is April 13th. The exhibit opens with a reception on Saturday, May 21st, and will remain on view through September 11th. Works in the exhibit

may be offered for sale, with one third of the price benefiting the museum.

For more information and a prospectus, contact lafo@fredericremington.org, download the prospectus, submit your entry online, or call 315-393-2425.
