19th Annual Regional Juried Exhibition

19th Annual Regional Juried Exhibition

Annual Regional Juried Exhibition
May 6 - July 29, 2023
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 6th, 5 pm - 8 pm
The annual Regional Juried Exhibition opens on Saturday, April 30th from 5-8 pm. The mission of this annual exhibition is to offer both established and emerging artists the opportunity to debut work created in the last two years. Each year, FAM invites a new juror to select approximately 40 - 50 works of art for inclusion, with first, second, third place, and honorable mention awards. Garnering a reputation as a highly competitive show, the museum received nearly 240 submissions from over 60 artists this year and includes artists living in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. The regional show continues a tradition of displaying some of the finest and most recent efforts by Midwestern artists showcasing a wide range of styles and approaches.
The special guest juror this year is Joshua Johnson of the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa. He is an experienced curator of contemporary art and an art educator. He received his MFA in Studio Art from American University in Washington, DC, his BFA in Sculpture and Painting from Dominican University in Oak Park, Illinois, and has done additional graduate work in Museum Studies at Western Illinois University. Joshua has worked at the Figge since 2015 when he started as a Graduate Assistant in the Curatorial Department. In addition to working at the Figge Joshua has taught art courses at Muscatine and Scott Community Colleges for the last 8 years. He has also acted as juror for a variety of exhibitions throughout the Quad Cities region.
