48 area artists share the spotlight at annual juried show at The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library in La Jolla

From Museum Reports
The Athenaeum’s Music & Arts Library has its 21st annual Juried Exhibition on view in the Joseph Clayes III and Rotunda galleries through Sept. 1.

Victor Angelo poses with his work, "Birth."

This year’s jurors — Ben Strauss-Malcolm, gallery director for Quint Contemporary Art and Jill Dawsey, associate curator for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego — selected 48 artists to participate in the show. The jurors were tasked with combing through hundreds of slides to choose the works to be featured. First-second-, and third-place honors were awarded by the jurors at the Aug. 3 opening reception.

Open only to artists who live, work, or have exhibited in San Diego, the Athenaeum’s juried exhibition “provides a platform for hometown artists to receive excellent exposure and to draw inspiration from talented peers,” according to Erika Torri, executive director of the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. Acceptable submissions this year included 2-D and 3-D media, with the exception of functional or craft art. All submissions were completed within the past five years.

    Way to go Victor. You're one of the best painters in SD, if not "the best". You deserve it (recognition), and more.
