The Silpe Gallery at the University of Hartford’s Hartford Art School announces the opening of the 2013 Hartford Art School Juried Alumni Exhibition. This annual event showcases the best work being produced by the talented alumni of the Hartford Art School, as chosen by an invited guest juror. The 2013 guest juror was Judith Tolnick Champa, critic, freelance curator, and editor-in-chief of Art New England magazine.
The exhibition will begin on Monday, October 14, 2013 and will run through Wednesday November 6, 2013. An opening reception will be held on Thursday October 17, 2013 from 5-7 p.m. in the Silpe Gallery. Three cash prizes and a one-week exhibition opportunity in the Silpe Gallery will be awarded to exhibiting alumni that evening during the reception.
The 2013 Hartford Art School Juried Alumni Exhibition began in August 2013 with a call for entries on the popular online jury website CallForEntries.org. Of the 128 pieces submitted, 47 works by 29 individual alumni were chosen for the exhibition. Exhibiting alumni received a variety of degrees from BFA to MAEd and graduated in a range of years from class of 2013 to class of 1964.
