    | Uncategorized | 7 hours ago



    Art has always been the raft onto which we climb to save our sanity. I don’t see a different purpose for it now. ~ Dorothea Tanning


    These words have more meaning than ever as we grapple with the new realities of self-isolating at home for the good of not just ourselves but our community.  In this vein, we are pleased to have come up with an online show to showcase the works in our annual Regional Juried Show to not just honor our artists but provide a little escape to someone who needs it.

    We are thrilled to announce the juror’s decisions of accepted works and awards for this prestigious show.   Thank you to our juror, Ruth Greene-McNally, Curator & Collections Manager, Ogunquit Museum of American Art for her hard work.  We thank all the artists for their submissions.  It takes a level of bravery to put your art and creativity into the world to be judged.  There were 512 submissions of which 149 were chosen, in 11 different media.   For the complete list, click here

    The show will be online May 1-30, with a process to purchase.
    Congratulations to all the accepted artists!
