Ann Arbor Women Artists Fall 2012 Juried Exhibition
Now through November 27, 2012 -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room Exhibit and 3rd Floor Exhibit
Ann Arbor Women Artists is a non-profit organization of approximately 330+ women and men with connections to Ann Arbor, ranging from beginning to professional artists. The purpose of the AAWA is to stimulate creative expression and sharing among its members in order to continually raise the quality of the art produced. Each calendar year the AAWA holds two or three juried shows. A juror is invited to select from a large group of submissions a final show that is a reflection of the body of work produced by the membership. The exhibition is on display in the Downtown Library lower level multi-purpose room and display cases, as well as on the 3rd floor.
On Thursday, October 18, 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the Downtown Library Multi-Purpose Room, the public is invited to hear a lecture by this year's juror, Vicki C. Wright, Director of Collections and Exhibitions for the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. Ms. Wright will discuss what, in her estimation, makes an interesting work of art using the art of the exhibition as a focal point and announce the winners of the AAWA Fall 2012 Juried Exhibition. She will also highlight current exhibitions at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, which is both a museum and a community art school. Refreshments will be served.
