The Annual Members Show at ArtReach St. Croix opened on Thursday, July 12th with a reception and awards presentation. This year’s exhibition celebrates the diversity of art created here and includes work by artists who live or work in the St. Croix Valley.
Two cash awards were presented at the reception. The Best of Show award went to Susan Strand-Penman for her ceramic sculpture, The Mermaid, and funded by arts enthusiast Suzann Brown. The VAC Award selected by members of the ArtReach visual arts committee was presented to Jerrilyn Strand for her alcohol ink painting, Distant Showers.
A third cash award, The Audience Award, will be announced at a closing reception on August 25 at 2-4pm. Each gallery visitor during the run of the Members Show is invited to cast one vote for their favorite artist or piece. All votes received by 3pm on the day of the closing party will be tallied to determine the award winner.
The Annual Members Show will be on view through Saturday, August 25.
Artists may pick up their work on Saturday, August 25 from 4-5pm or Monday, August 27 from 10am-3pm.
Ten years ago, a team of artists, scientists, writers and musicians created photomontage art, narrative and songs to imagine the past, present and future of the valley from the St. Croix River’s point of view. This work by Deb Chial, Matt Kassanchuk, Beth Diem and others will be on display at ArtReach St. Croix for the 50th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act.
A Story of the St. Croix: Patterns of Change will be on view August 30-October 6.
The original project was exhibited at Arcola Mills and received funding from The McKnight Foundation. Current funding provided by The Mike and Beth Diem Foundation.
