Deadline August 15, 2019
The Berkeley Arts Council in Martinsburg, West Virginia announces the Seventh Annual Eastern West Virginia Juried Exhibit, to be displayed in the Berkeley Art Works Gallery, 116 North Queen Street in Martinsburg, WV. The exhibition will be on display September 4 – October 5, 2019.
The exhibit is open to artists in all media who reside in one of the eight counties that compose what is known as the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. Those counties are Berkeley, Jefferson, Morgan, Hampshire, Hardy, Grant, Mineral, and Pendleton.
The theme for the exhibit is open.
The Juror for the exhibit is Judith Becker
Judith Becker received a BS in Design, Certificate of Education, University of Michigan and MS in Education, Monmouth University. Of all of her art related accomplishments, she is most proud of being an art educator. Teaching people the joys of producing art, of finding solace and pleasure in the art process is a gift she gives in return for the joy it brings to her.
Judith specializes in painting with watercolors, colored pencils, pastels and often mixes her media for unusual effects. She is especially accomplished in composition, design and color theory. She is the creator of a unique art form called “Spritzilism”™, which involves using botanicals as templates for sprayed watercolor paint. The results produce interesting compositions with lots of vibrant colors and textures and is one of her specialties.
She is an award winning member of the West Virginia Watercolor Society and is a juried artist of Tamarack, “The Best of West Virginia”, where she also exhibits and sells her art through its Dickirson Gallery.
She currently resides in the WV Panhandle area where she is a member of the Board of Directors and the Coordinator of Art Education for the Berkeley Arts Council. She shows her work in the Berkeley Art Works gallery in Martinsburg.
The entry fee for one or two works is $25. Additional works may be submitted for a fee of $10 for each additional work up to a total of four works.
The projected prize fund for the exhibit is $350. Additional prizes will be determined by the number of entries.
