2022 17th Annual Member Exhibition
It is our pleasure to share with you this year's member exhibition! Our show at the Wolfeboro Public Library has ended its run, but please enjoy this virtual option along with some fun extras from the closing reception held on July 30th. Stay tuned for a reel of candids from the Closing!
We tried something new this year by dividing the judging into 2 categories, Member and Signature Circle. We felt that to truly promote the work of new members, we wanted to create more opportunity for recognition and prizes to encourage active pursuit of the medium.
Acknowledgements: We would like to express our appreciation to our Juror of Awards, Aline Ordman. She judged the show in person and took such great care in selecting this year's winners. Special Thanks also goes to the donors of some of our prizes: Jacob Aguiar, Judy McKenna, Sally Shea, & Marilyn Bok. This show would not have come together without the efforts of our show chair Paula Fraser (and her appropriately named husband: Art!) And her assistants who came out to help hang the show: Terri Brooks, Robin Hebert, Susanne Larkham, Sasha Wolfe & Debra Accardi.
And the Winners Are...
An Elevated Perspective
Best of Show
An Elevated Perspective drew me to it first and foremost, for its originality. I think the monochromatic color scheme which surrounds the hawk and then allows it to subtly emerge very much echos how these birds exist in nature…half hidden and hard to find but amazing when you do find them. The confident strokes and abstraction of the surroundings create a picture that perfectly conveys to the viewer the artist’s intention.
People's Choice Award
While Aline Ordman juried the prize winners, there's one special award
that our show viewers select:
The People's Choice!
The tallies from both online &
inhouse were added together to determine the
2022 People's Choice Award
