Award-winning Algoma sculptor and art instructor Bren Sibilsky has been chosen as a guest juror for Manhattan Arts International HERStory 2017. The Manhattan Arts International HERStory 2017 is an online exhibition of women artists that runs from April 27 – June 27, 2017. It will feature the artwork of more than 50 outstanding women artists from around the world. The artists will also be featured in an e-Book, HERStory 2017, published in May 2017.
Renée Phillips has been organizing HERStory exhibitions since 2000. She explained, “For centuries women artists have inspired, enlightened and informed us with their enormous talent, vision and commitment. Many have served as creative trailblazers. Unfortunately, their contributions have gone under-recognized. The purpose of this exhibition is to provide a venue for outstanding women artists who have been ignored by the mainstream art world.”
This year Phillips has also invited several accomplished professionals in the art world to act as guest jurors and select top honors for the best of show in various specialties. The 2017 sculpture award will be chosen by Algoma sculptor Sibilsky (brensculpture.com), founder of Algoma Atelier of Sculpture and Art. She has won top awards in several Manhattan Arts International juried competitions, including a top award in “HERStory 2015.”
Sibilsky will select a sculptor to be promoted extensively on social media and featured in a press release that will be widely distributed.
Phillips stated, “I am honored that Bren Sibilsky has agreed to join our prestigious awards committee this year. After winning several Manhattan Arts International awards over the years, in addition to her many career credentials, she is a perfect judge to select a woman artist in the sculpture category. Her discerning eye and meticulous attention to detail and technical ability are essential qualities for our judging criteria.”
