22nd Annual Juried Exhibition Opening Reception

Forty-six artists have been selected from among nearly 1,000 submissions for the Athenaeum’s 22nd Annual Juried Exhibition, on view in the Joseph Clayes III and Rotunda galleries, August 3 through 31, 2013. The opening reception will be held on Friday, August 2, 6:30–8:30 p.m. The event is free to attend for both Athenaeum members and the public.

Each year, a prominent arts administrator from a local gallery or institution is selected by the Athenaeum’s executive director Erika Torri to serve as a juror. Past jurors include Hugh Davies, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Robin Clark, past Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Arthur Ollman, former Director of the School of Art, Design and Art History at San Diego State University, John Wilson, Executive Director of the Timken Museum, Ben Strauss-Malcolm, Gallery Director for Quint Contemporary Art, and Mark Quint, Owner of Quint Contemporary Art, to name a few.

This year’s jurors Ariel Plotek, Assistant Curator, San Diego Museum of Art, and Amy Galpin, Associate Curator, Art of the Americas, San Diego Museum of Art, were tasked with the responsibility of combing through hundreds of images to select winning works to be featured in the show. First-, second-, and third- place honors will be awarded by the jurors at the opening reception.

Open only to artists who live, work, or have exhibited in San Diego, the Athenaeum’s annual juried exhibition provides a platform for local artists to receive excellent exposure and to draw inspiration from talented peers. Acceptable submissions this year included 2-D and 3-D media, with the exception of functional or craft art. All submissions have been completed within the past five years.
