The Bi-State Juried Exhibition held at the Meridian Museum of Art in Meridian, MS offers over $3,000 in awards including $1,000 for Best of Show! This exhibition showcases contemporary artists in Mississippi and Alabama. The exhibition will run from August 19 to October 17 with the Awards Reception on Saturday, October 17 from 6 to 8 pm.
This year's juror is Brian Kelly who has an M.F.A. in printmaking from Louisiana State University, a B.F.A. in printmaking from Northern Illinois, and various other awesome credentials. Currently, he is Head of the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He has conducted workshops, lectured, and exhibited around the world.
I entered one piece in the show this year, "Pagan Totem Goddess", which, I am happy to say, was accepted! This is a pretty trippy picture, and I hope people enjoy it.
Here is a complete list of the artists whose works were accepted for the show.
