[UPDATE: Award Winners]Accepted Works: Eastern WV Juried Exhibit

The Berkeley Arts Council in Martinsburg, West Virginia announces the accepted artists for 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.

26 works from 24 regional artists were selected from 58 submitted works by Juror Judith Becker.

Juror’s Statement:

There were many creative and interesting pieces entered into the exhibit. Selecting the best to show the talent and diversity of the wonderful artists of our area of West Virginia was a challenge. Our exhibit space does not allow for every entry to be accepted and shown. Therefore, some pieces could not be accepted and is no reflection on the value of the work(s) you submitted but did not get selected.

I selected pieces which exemplified excellent creativity, elements of good composition and design and technical acumen. This will portray to the visitors to the exhibit the high level of talent each accepted artist has.

Congratulations the artists whose work were accepted to this great annual juried art exhibit.

Judith Becker, BS Design, Cert. of Education and MSE

Please plan on joining us for a reception and awards presentation on Sunday, September 15 from 2-4pm at the gallery.
