I am acting as assistant to the producer of West of Center at the Northville Art House. This is one of my very favorite local exhibitions and I am very excited about this -- although it means I won't be able to enter any of my own work into the show. I simply cannot pass up the opportunity!
Today I picked up the first two entries at the NAH.
This is the 6th Annual West of Center All Media Show. In a nod to our location, as well as our philosohy of bringing the community something unexpected, West of Center is an inspired effort to showcase contemporary artworks selected by a highly-regarded juror.
Here is a link for the printable Call for Entry for the show -- you don't need to be local to us to enter. Deadline for entries to arrive at the Northville Art House is April 12 at 5:00 p.m. And I am excited to report that the NAH is offering cash awards for the first - fourth place winners this year.
This year's Juror is Robert Schefman. A native of Detroit, renowned fine artist Robert Schefman is currently the Chair of the Foundations Department, and Associate Professor at the The College for Creative Studies. Robert holds a BFA from Michigan State University, and an MA in Sculpture and MFA from the University of Iowa. His work, in both solo and group exhibitions, has been shown extensively in galleries and museums in New York and Michigan, (including the Detroit Institute of Art) and throughout the United States in numerous private and public collections. He is represented locally by the Robert Kidd Gallery in Birmingham, MI. Robert's work can be viewed at his website.
I hope you will consider entering this really great all-media juried show -- it is very well attended and gets great press coverage. And, as mentioned earlier, we have cash awards this year.
