Gallery 842 Hosts Juried Exhibition
Approximately 25 artists and 40 works are represented in the show, including students in Marshall University’s art department as well as other entries from across the region, said John Farley, director of Marshall University galleries.
“In this particular juried exhibit, the competition was open to artists working in any medium, addressing any theme, student or professional,” Farley explained. “It will be a diverse cross-section of contemporary art that reflects the Huntington and Marshall University art communities, as well as artists practicing throughout the region.”
Farley noted that juried competitions are a great way for artists to gauge the quality and development of their work against that of their peers.
“As an artist, it’s a chance to see what others are making, where you fit in – or not, network, gain exposure, polish your presentation skills, learn from others and think about what you are making in a broader context,” Farley said. “This specific competition can be of particular benefit to students, in the sense that they are pitting themselves and their work against artists who may have far more experience, education and so on. It is a worthwhile challenge, and an opportunity to grow, learn and hone their craft.”
Katherine Cox juried this year’s competition. Cox holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Fla. Her drawings have been exhibited in galleries throughout the mid-Atlantic region, including recent solo and invitational shows at the Muse Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, and the Art Store in Charleston, W.Va. Cox is currently the director of education at the Huntington Museum of Art.
Admission to Gallery 842 is free and open to the public from noon to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturday. The 3rd Annual Juried Exhibition runs through Friday, Oct. 18.
