VISTA [landscape in contemporary art]

Charcoal & Conte on Arches
24 x 20 inches
I am delighted to be included in the Manifest Gallery's season 10 opener, VISTA [landscape in contemporary art].  The exhibition opens in the Main Gallery and Drawing Center on September 27th and runs until October 25th.
"In honor of all the Earth has given and continues to give, Manifest invited artists, designers, architects, and others to submit artwork to this competitive juried exhibit which marks the opening of our 10th season of exhibitions. Manifest is pleased to share this carefully selected collection of works featuring landscape as their common theme, by artists representing an incredibly broad geographical radius.
VISTA received a record number of entries for a gallery project at Manifest. Our several-member blind jury process reviewed 1,020 works by 409 artists from 43 states and 18 different countries. Twenty-two works by the following 20 artists from Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and England were selected for exhibition."
