Newport Annual Members' Juried Exhibition 2013

February 2 – May 19, 2013     Cushing Gallery

Generously supported by Edward and Wendy Harvey.

In 2013 the Newport Art Museum celebrates 100 years of art education with the Centennial of its art school, now the Coleman Center for Creative Studies.  With that in mind, this year’s jurors for the Newport Annual are distinguished art educators.  Together, Virginia K. Freyermuth and Nancy Friese have selected ninety works from a total of 338, to form a cohesive and exciting Newport Annual. They have also determined a Best-in-Show award as well as first prizes in painting, watercolor, prints/pastels/drawings, mixed media, photography and three-dimensional.

The jurors “reviewed many high quality pieces that were submitted and chose a smaller selection to fit the space available.”  For the exhibition they also selected three pieces by students in the Newport Art Museum’s MUSE high school museum studies program. 

Art Museum Curator Nancy Whipple Grinnell will confer the Newport Art Museum Award. The winning artist will be offered a solo exhibition at the Museum. The visiting public is once again invited to cast votes for the "People's Choice Award." Vote once every time you visit during the run of the "Newport Annual."
