Work Selected for Collective Visions Gallery Show
I’m happy to announce that my artwork, Nazo (Enigma), has been chosen for inclusion in the 2014 Collective Visions Gallery (CVG) Show in Bremerton.
The Seventh Annual CVG Show is one of the largest and most prestigious art competitions in the Northwest. Over 280 artists from 70 Washington cities submitted 771 artworks for consideration. Of these only 116 pieces were selected for inclusion in the show. The exhibition juror is Jamie Walker, a noted Seattle-based ceramic artist and sculptor. Walker is a Professor of Art and Associate Director University of Washington’s School of Art. Walker will choose the recipients of $7,000 in prizes going to 11 artists in multiple categories. Additional prizes include a $2,000 purchase award by the Kitsap County Arts Board, a $300 People’s Choice Award and a $1,000 Best of Kitsap Award sponsored by the Cultural Arts Foundation Northwest. Winning a prize would be great, but it’s an honor to be included in this show.
Building upon this highly successful state-wide juried art show, Collective Visions Gallery is organizing a three-day winter arts festival (January 24-26, 2014) that will include art films, theatre performances, and jazz concerts.
The expansion of the opening events for the 2014 CVG Show will make the popular Awards Ceremony and Juror’s Lecture accessible to the general public and attractive to both local and out-of-town art lovers and collectors. The Artist’s and Sponsor’s Reception, Awards Ceremony and Juror’s Lecture will be held in Bremerton’s elegant Admiral Theatre on Saturday evening, January 25, 2014. While the reception is limited to ticket holders, the Awards Ceremony and Juror’s Lecture is free to the public. Advance tickets to the reception are $15 each and may be purchased at brownpapertickets.com or at the door on a space available basis.
The 2014 CVG Show will open on January 25, 2014 at 1 pm. The exhibit continues until Saturday, March 1, 2014. The gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 to 5 and Sunday 1 to 5. Collective Visions Gallery is located in downtown Bremerton at 331 Pacific Avenue, just 3 blocks from the ferry terminal. Phone: 360 377 8327
