The 45th Juried Exhibition was selected by guest juror Larry Ossei-Mensah, a Ghanaian-American curator and cultural critic who has organized exhibitions and programs at commercial and nonprofit spaces around the globe.
Ossei-Mensah visited Athens and the Lyndon House for two days in January to review Athens area artist submissions. In those two days, 278 artists entered 711 works of art. Ossei-Mensah evaluated the multitude of works with sensitivity and intuition to select 199 works representing 144 local artists and 18 merit cash awards.
The exhibition opens on March 5 with an opening reception from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and runs March 5 - May 2, 2020. All exhibitions are free and open to the public during regular gallery hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 9:00 p.m., and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
