Remington Museum Announces Winners of Members' Juried Art Exhibit

Fishing Village Spirit, 2017, by Doug McDonald, plains cottonwood, 8 x 19" won the “Best in Show” award for the 2018 Members’ Juried Art Exhibit.

  

Juror Margaret Jacobs said of the carving, “The artist conveys the idea and spirit of this piece beautifully and honestly. This piece stands out because of how the artist responds to the material to create form and generate mark-making. The work is intimate and quiet, yet demands the viewer’s full attention and engagement.”

Hunter Beans, 2017, by Annie Dalton, acrylic on canvas, 16 x 12” won the second place award for the 2018 Members’ Juried Art Exhibit.

  

Juror Margaret Jacobs said of this painting, “The artist has used vibrant color and playful composition to create a piece that is dynamic and full of life. There is an incredibly beautiful and rhythmic movement to this work and I love the bold color choices.”
Sleeping in Child's Pose, 2016, by Raymond Whalen, pencil on paper, 25 x 37" won the third place award for the 2018 Members’ Juried Art Exhibit.

  

Juror Margaret Jacobs said of this drawing, “The artist has elegantly conveyed space, movement, and light, using simple line and mark-making. The piece includes only what is necessary to its intention and is incredibly graceful in its simplicity.”

In her comments about the exhibition, juror Margaret Jacobs remarked, “I think shows of this nature are such gems to the communities that host them. They give artists the ability to push boundaries within their own practice and the opportunity to introduce their work to an institution and to the surrounding community. In turn, these shows invigorate and provide new and exciting ideas to the hosting institution and the attendees who view the exhibition.”
