Opening Reception Saturday November 17th, 5-8 PM

The Annual Regional Juried Exhibition at the Freeport Art Museum features work by artists living in the tri-state region of Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Created to encourage contemporary art, this show provides an opportunity for established and emerging artists to debut their latest work. The Regional Juried Exhibition continues to build momentum each year. A wide variety of media is accepted from traditional materials such as painting and sculpture to conceptual and new techniques including video, interactive media, performance and installation art.

FAM has gained the distinguished reputation of displaying a wide range of contemporary art, allowing this exhibition to become a favorite among visitors. Each year, FAM invites a new juror, who selects approximately 50 artworks for inclusion into the exhibition, as well as the artworks to be awarded first, second and third place. Award winners will be announced at the opening reception.
