42nd Juried Exhibition

Thursday, March 23, 2017


 The Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services Department will host the opening of the 42nd Juried Exhibition on Thursday, March 23 from 6-8 PM with a reception at Lyndon House Arts Center

This year’s show was selected by guest juror Ms. Susan Krane, Oshman Executive Director of the San Jose Museum of Art

Ms. Krane visited Athens and the Lyndon House for two days in January to review Athens area artist submissions.  In those two days, 313 artists entered 797 works of art.  Ms. Krane quelled through the multitude of works with great sensitivity and scrutiny, always remarking with great admiration, on the outstanding quality of the work whether from experienced professionals or those experimenting or taking risks.  With awe, she has given us a concise group show of 162 works from large sculpture, works on paper, photography, painting to fiber and metalwork, all of which she found particular strength.  

In celebration of the 42nd, every Thursday in the month of April, the Lyndon House will host gallery talks with Juried Exhibition artists.  These will take place from 6 – 7 PM on April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The exhibit and gallery talks are free and open to the public.

The exhibition continues through May 6, 2017.  All exhibitions are free and open to the public during regular gallery hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 9 PM, and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9 AM to 5 PM
