Blog posts tagged in Annual Juried Show

The Art Gallery of Bancroft was thrilled to be selected as host of the 56th Annual East Central Ontario Art
Association's annual juried exhibition this year. The Gallery was full at the show's opening earlier this month, as regional artists and guests from far and near gathered in a social setting to enjoy the wonderful display of art that presently adorns the Gallery walls.
The juror for this Year's exhibition was Bancroft's own Arne Roosman, maestro of the mural, stage settings and well known local artist.  Arne faced an extremely difficult task making his final selections in the different categories. When asked about his selection process, he said "all submitted pieces were of substantial quality, and show the artists' love of painting, but in the end, I had to just trust my heart".
Artist Debra Bannister took home the Juror's Choice Award for her stand-out watercolour "Swan Parade", which was inspired by the Swan March that takes place in Stratford every year to mark the beginning of the Stratford Theatre Festival.
Be sure to stop in at the gallery to enjoy this wonderfully diverse show, on display until August 24th. While there, check out the impressive Bancroft and Area Studio tour preview wall in the gift shop. Local and area artists have displayed selections of their work to give you an advanced look at their beautiful creations. The Studio Tour takes place this year on the weekends of September 20-21 and 27-28.

Our annual juried show is more true to the calendar than the season. What it does have in common is its unpredictability. The acceptance of many, seemingly all, of the entries takes some of the edge off the event.

To yours truly, it is not just the thrill of being thus honored, and more often than not with an award, it is as well when a piece is rejected. The curious “Why?” that adds to what this event is much about.
