BRATTLEBORO—Brattleboro Museum & Art Center announced the imminent arrival of “Open Call NXNE 2018: Works on Paper,“ the Center’s annual juried exhibit.
The exhibit opens Saturday, Jan. 13, with a brunch reception at 11 a.m. that is free and open to all.
More than 200 artists from New England and New York submitted work for consideration by juror Sique Spence of Nancy Hofmann Gallery. Spence selected 22 artists for inclusion in the exhibit. Their work encompasses drawing, printmaking, collage, watercolor, assemblage, paper sculpture, and other forms.
In a statement accompanying the exhibit, Spence writes, “The underlying theme of this exhibition is paper, its inherent properties, and the range of possibilities it offers in the hands of an artist. My primary objective as juror was to select the best work, and I was delighted by the rich variety of means, methods, and subject matter presented.”
“Open Call NXNE 2018: Works on Paper” will remain on view at BMAC through March 10.
The artists included in the exhibit are Pat Bega, Bradley Butler, Cindy Davis, Rita Edelman, Marjorie Forte, William Hays, Charlie Hunter, Edward A. Kingsbury, Niki Kriese, M.P. Landis, SeungTack Lim, Linda Mahoney, Mary Mattingly, Frank Ozereko, Justin Perlman, Robin Reynolds, Deborah Rubin, Sayward Schoonmaker, Russell Serrianne, Jen Simms, Scott Tulay, and Antoinette Winters.
