The Miller Art Museum invites participation from both established and emerging visual artists, 18-years-old and older, who reside in the counties of Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc and Oconto counties for its 40th Juried Annual.
The exhibition, on display Sept. 12 to Nov. 3, will feature work of two-dimensional media. The postmark deadline for entry is Aug. 10; hand deliveries will be accepted at the museum office through Aug. 12. Artists may submit up to two pieces; the entry fee is $20.
Works must be original, completed within the last two years (not created under the direction of a teacher in a class or workshop) and not previously exhibited in Door County. It is entirely the artists’ discretion as to whether or not works be listed for sale. Work may not be removed until the close of the exhibition. A total of eight awards will be presented totaling $1,175. The jury panel will select three special merit awards and three honorable mention awards. The Gerhard CF Miller Award of Excellence and the Bonnie Hartmann Award for Outstanding Creativity, chosen by museum staff, are given in memory of Gerhard, the museum’s founder, and in honor of the recently retired Bonnie Hartmann, for her many outstanding achievements as director in her 23-year years with the museum.
The opening reception is scheduled for Sept. 12, 5 – 6:30 pm with the announcement of awards at 5:30 pm.
