Opening reception: Saturday May 11th, 4 – 7 pm.
In May the Media Arts Council Gallery will exhibit works selected for their 3rd Annual Juried Painting Exhibition. The theme of this year’s show is Arise. This year’s juror Nancy Barch selected 41 pieces from 27 different artists. With a mix of abstract and realistic pieces, this show has something for everyone.
The artists featured in this year’s show include: Phyllis Anderson, Amanda Bailey, Deena Ball, Priscilla Bohlen, Leslie Bohn, Elizabeth Breakell, Will Brown, Lisa Burger Lentz, Katey Carlis, Laura Ducceschi, Judy Fowler, Jill Haas, Patrick Hay, Rebecca Jacob, Charles Joyce, Jane McGovern, Michael Moore Jr., Lee Muslin, Ruch Ochia, Sarah O’Donoghue, Pete Prown, Christopher Quimby, J Rossi, Edna Santiago, Cheryl Schlenker, Susan Stefanski, and Jasmine Tindle.
Nancy Barch has evolved from illustration, to watercolor and finally, in this last decade, mixed media. Nancy has been the recipient of a number of awards for work in a variety of media, but has decidedly focused on a mix of acrylics, collage, and transfers of all types.
Her work is in many corporate collections such as, Morgan Stanley, Liberty Properties, Lincoln Investments, AIG, and so on. She has also been featured in “100 Artists of The Mid Atlantic,” a book published by Amazon.
This exhibition is sponsored by Francis X. Shields and Donna Shields of Media.
