Sunday, October 14 - Sunday, November 11, 2018
Every year, the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington programs a juried art exhibition to give us the opportunity to learn about artists in our community, and create a space for local artists to show their work in the gallery. We receive many submissions that are examined by professional curators and jurors, who select the works that are exhibited in the gallery and award the works that stand out.
In keeping with this long standing tradition, the VAC proudly hosts the 38th Annual Juried Show. Four prizes will be handed out this year, three of which will be selected by the juror and announced at the exhibition opening, and a People’s Choice Award, which will be voted on by the public and announced at the end of the exhibition. This year’s prizes will reflect on the best works in the exhibition regardless of medium, subject matter or size. The award categories are as follows:
First Place - The Best in Show Mayor’s Award: Matthew M. Garby for "Interior"
Second Place Award: Debbie Wong for "Circles"
Third Place Award: Marjatta Beasley for "Fiction #2"
The People’s Choice Award sponsored by Tucker’s Pottery Supplies Inc.
This year’s juror is Sonya Jones, Curator of Collections at the The Robert McLaughlin Gallery. Prior to the RMG, Jones worked for a private art dealer in Toronto, the Canadian Heritage Information Network, and Carleton University Art Gallery. She completed an Honours BA at Carleton University, and a post-graduate certificate in Museum Management and Curatorship at Fleming College. She has curated over 40 exhibitions featuring the Thomas Bouckley Collection of historical photographs and 7 contemporary art exhibitions, including the travelling exhibitions The lingering: Toni Hamel, and Jay Dart: Greetings from Yawnder!.
