The Parrish Art Museum has announced the featured artists for their Artists Choose Artists show, which celebrates artists’ works on the East End and their strong relationships with the surrounding creative community.
For Artists Choose Artists, a panel of seven judges chose 14 artists they considered to have made significant contributions to the Hamptons art community.
The artists chosen for this exhibition include Dinah Maxwell Smith, Garrett Chingery, Jackie Black, Suzanne Anker, Anne Bae, Bill Komoski, Karin Waisman, Monica Banks, Toni Ross, Almond Zigmund, Ben Butler, Saskia Friedrich, Marianne Weil and R.J.T. Haynes.
The jurors who determined the winning artists include Lynda Benglis, Tony Oursler, Donald Lipski, Cindy Sherman, Jorge Pardo, Leo Villareal and Tina Barney. The jurors are prominent artists in New York City and on the East End.
The exhibition not only enables artists to show off some of their best works, but it also helps to create bonds between the featured artists.
“This juried show is distinguished by the inclusion of the jurors’ work alongside the artists selected. The process is designed to encourage friendships and even mentorships,” says Andrea Grover, Century Arts Foundation Curator of Special Projects. “Jurors meet with the artists and conduct studio visits, and in this way, meaningful connections are established.”
Over 200 artists submitted applications for consideration. All applicants had to be residents on the East End of Long Island. This is the third time the art museum is hosting this exhibition.
The “Artists Choose Artists” Exhibition will be displayed from October 30, 2016 to January 16, 2017 at the Parrish Art Museum, 279 Montauk Highway, Water Mill. General admission is $10/museum members are free. For hours and more information about this exhibition visit parrishart.org.
