SUMMER 2016 EXHIBITIONS:
Fence Show 2016
May 20 – June 26, 2016
Artists’ reception: Friday, May 27, 5-9PM
The Fence Show is an annual opportunity for all Arts Center members to display their work in our galleries. This year we accepted and displayed 382 pieces, including paintings, drawing, photography, fiber arts, stained glass and sculpture. There is also a separate category for young artists in grades K-12. Kimberly Marrero, Art Advisor + Independent Curator, served as this year’s juror. Marrero curated a smaller show from the Fence Show called the Fence Select, which will be on display for several weeks after the salon style show is dismantled.
This year’s juror, Kimberly Marrero, curated 47 works by 31 artists for the Fence Select exhibit that will open on July 16. For the Student Fence Select, Marrero picked 10 works by 8 artists in grades K-12. She also chose this year’s Best in Show winner and two juror awards in both the adult and student categories. The Creative Spirit and Arts Center awards were selected by the Gala Committee and Arts Center Staff, and were presented at the Gala on May 19.
