From Athenaeum Reports

Forty-six artists have been selected from among nearly 1,000 submissions for the Athenaeum’s 22nd Annual Juried Exhibition, on view in the Joseph Clayes III and Rotunda galleries, Aug. 3-31.

The public is invited to the exhibition’s opening reception, 6:30–8:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2 at The Athenaeum, 1008 Wall St.

Each year, a prominent arts administrator from a local gallery or institution is selected by the Athenaeum’s executive director Erika Torri to serve as a juror. This year’s jurors, Ariel Plotek (assistant curator, San Diego Museum of Art) and Amy Galpin (associate curator, Art of the Americas, San Diego Museum of Art) were tasked with combing through hundreds of images to select winning works for the show.

First-, second-, and third- place honors will be awarded by the jurors at the opening reception.

“This year’s show is quite noteworthy because we had more submissions than ever before,” Torri said. “The jurors picked 51 pieces from a collection of close to 1,000 submissions. Their goal was to select the best work submitted without any particular theme or medium in mind. It is a varied and high caliber presentation.

“Since we do not get involved in the selection process and leave all decisions to the jurors themselves, we end up with completely different approaches to the shows every time. All artists have a local connection, many of them are emerging and new to the Athenaeum, but quite a few have exhibited with us in previous juried shows. It is always most gratifying to see so many artists returning and becoming more acquainted with the Athenaeum.”

Open only to artists, who live, work or have exhibited in San Diego, this exhibition provides a platform for local artists to receive excellent exposure and to draw inspiration from talented peers. Acceptable submissions included 2-D and 3-D media, with the exception of functional or craft art. All submissions have been completed within the past five years.
