The Freeport Art Museum's Tenth Annual

Regional Juried Exhibition

November 16, 2013 - February 8, 2014

Opening Reception Friday November 15th, 5-8 PM

The tenth annual Regional Juried Exhibition continues the Freeport Art Museum’s tradition of providing contemporary artists with a venue to debut their latest work. This show features art by emerging and established artists living in the tri-state region of Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa. The Regional Juried exhibition has been building momentum over the last decade and has grown to include over 160 submissions each year. A wide variety of media is accepted from traditional materials such as painting and sculpture to conceptual and new media techniques including video, interactive media, performance and installation art. This year, FAM is pleased to award Doug Johnson (Normal, IL), Kathleen Wilken (Freeport, IL) and Joseph Turek (Freeport, IL) with first, second and third place cash awards. In addition to the cash awards, three honorable mentions were recognized by the juror; Dan Brinkmeier (Mount Carroll, IL) Brian Reis (DeKalb, IL) and Linda Vietmeyer (Orangeville, IL).

 Juror, Peter Olson, earned his MFA in printmaking from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb and works as the Assistant Director at the NIU Art Museum. Within the recent past he has had several solo exhibitions in Illinois: in Aurora, Batavia, Bloomington, Evanston, Quincy, Oak Park, St. Charles, Elgin and DeKalb. Recent group exhibitions include the prestigious international Birds in Art in Wausau, Wisconsin, American print surveys in Kansas and Indiana and several shows at Chicago’s Printworks Gallery.
