What a thrill that my image The Wish has been chosen to be part of Essential Art 2017!
You can read about the application experience in my blog post Behind the Scenes - Applying to a Juried Art Exhibit.
Visual Arts Minnesota organizes this annual juried exhibit. From their website, here's a little bit what it's all about....
"Visual Arts Minnesota's mission is to foster a relevant and engaging visual culture in Minnesota through exhibitions and community partnerships. We create opportunities for visual artists to exhibit and promote their work. The Essential Art Exhibition is Visual Arts Minnesota’s annual open juried art show. There is no theme for the show. It is open to 3D and 2D submissions. Register artwork in any media (painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, etc.). The submitted work must have been completed within the past two years. The Essential Art Exhibition has been an opportunity for artists to come together annually and exhibit their most mature work. Included in the process is a discussion with the juror on the day of the reception and a docent talk of the selected pieces during the reception."
