The 7th Annual Keystone Fine Art Juried Exhibition opens April 7 at the Walk In Art Center, 200 Parkway in Schuylkill Haven. Artists from all over Pennsylvania are invited to submit their work for adjudication and to win cash awards. The exhibition will run through April 26.
Artists interested in submitting their work may do so on March 31 from 5 to 7 p.m., April 2 from 5 to 7 p.m. and April 3 from noon to 3 pm and 6 to 8 p.m. A prospectus with categories and details is available at walkinartcenter.org.
Awards will be given out at the opening ceremony and reception at 7 p.m. on April 7. There will be complimentary refreshments and live music.
“The Keystone is one of our favorite exhibitions each year because it introduces new artists and visitors to the Walk In Art Center,” WIAC Executive Director Jacqueline Engel said. “Visitors can vote for their favorite and the piece will win the new People’s Choice Award, and cash awards and ribbons are given to works in six categories — $200 for first place and $100 for second.
“It really is a great opportunity for an artist to have their work seen and to see what others in the area are creating.”
This year’s juror is Lauren Nye, director of exhibitions at the Susquehanna Art Museum in Harrisburg. She has curated exhibitions at both commercial and non-profit venues since 2010 and has assisted in sculptural installations nationally and internationally. Nye has served as a juror and/or judge at arts organizations such as the Berks Arts Council, Elizabethtown College, Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts, Carlisle Arts Learning Center, Adams County Arts Council, Creative York, and Millersville University, where she was the first alumni juror in exhibition history.
The exhibit can be viewed weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1-5 from April 7-26.
