Poetry Meets Art: An Afternoon of Poetry Inspired by the Artwork Sunday January 25, 2 p.m.
Our annual discovery juried exhibition provides exposure to emerging artists. The jurors, artist Joan Skeet, Seymour Art Gallery’s Director / Curator Sarah Cavanaugh, and 2014 Interim Curator, Dr. Hilary Letwin have selected 27 artists to exhibit. Each has created a piece that reflects our theme: Fire. The result is a fresh and eclectic show, with the artists presenting work that is as varied as their backgrounds; encompassing painting, ceramics, glass, mixed media, and photography.
One artist will be presented with the Carole Badgley Emerging Artist Award, with a cash prize of $300 furnished by the SAG, and honourable mentions will receive prizes donated by Opus Art Supplies and Kroma Acrylics. Prize-winning artists will be selected by former Seymour Art Gallery curator Carole Badgley.
Featured artists: Anson Aguirre Firth, Larissa Blokhuis, Kiranjot Bal, Shane Bourgeois, Tieabow, Heather Curry, Dorothy Doherty, John Duncan, Karisa Evdokimoff, Michael Fitzsimmons, Judith Frigon, Joan Gauthier, Monica Gewurz, Faye Gordon-Lewis, Denise Grams, Alissa Kim Tjen, Suzanne Laird, Mena Martini, Gabriele Maurus, Marion Maxwell, Jaime Murdoch, Joyce Ozier, Karen Santos, Shamina Senaratne, Peter Sickert, Bill Stewart, and Jeff Wilson.
