Guild Hall is currently accepting artwork for its 75th Annual Members Exhibition, which will be open from Saturday, April 27 to Saturday, June 1.
Open to every artist member of Guild Hall, this show is one of the museum‘s most anticipated each year as it provides opportunity and exposure for all artist participants. This year, awards judge Elisabeth Sussman is curating the exhibition. Sussman is the Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography at the Whitney Museum of American Art and she curated the 2012 and 1993 Whitney Biennials.
Art in a variety of media will be accepted and displayed, and winners will be chosen in various categories, including a brand new award for Best Interpretation of the 75th/Diamond Anniversary theme.
Along with the Diamond Award, the awards categories include Best Representational Painting, Best Abstract Painting, Best Sculpture, Best Work on Paper, Best Mixed Media, Best Photograph and numerous Honorable Mention citations, along with the $250 Catherine and Theo Hios Landscape Award and the Best New Member Artist presented to one artist who is new to the Members Exhibition or who has not entered in the past five years.
All registration materials are available at GuildHall.org. Registration cards postmarked by April 12 will be included in the Artist Checklist. Registration submitted after this date will still be accepted into the exhibition, but on the Artist Checklist. Artwork drop off is April 19–20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Artwork pick up is June 2–3 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
