Animal Kingdom: From Tame to Wild

Oops!  Sorry, you missed the deadline to enter the 2017 juried art competition.  Don’t dismay.  There are lots of opportunities left for artists to get involved.  Our next juried art contest is scheduled for spring 2018.  Keep checking back for updates.

All amateur and professional artists were invited to submit up to three works with animals as the theme.  Finalists will be notified after August 4 and the winners will be announced at an artists’ reception on Friday, September 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places plus honorable mention.  The reception is open to the public and light refreshments will be served.

All final entries will be displayed in the Visitors Center from September 15 through October 31, 2017 for the Animal Kingdom exhibition.

Our guest judges for this year’s competition are Seung Lee, Professor of Art and Director of Fine Arts and Graduate Studies at LIU Post; and Christine Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director of Chief Curator of Guild Hall Museum.
