Exhibit: September 21 - October 29
The Athenaeum Invitational is a theme-based event. The exhibition features the works of both specially-invited artists who have exhibited in the Athenaeum Gallery in the past, as well as works selected through a call for submissions. This year's theme, GLOW, asks artists to create work that shows a sense of lightness or hope emanating from something dark. A $1500 prize for the best work will be awarded to an invited artist, and a $1000 prize will be awarded to an artist from the open call. The show is juried by the Athenaeum Gallery Director, Twig Murray and the prize winners will be selected by Zoe Charlton.
