OGDENSBURG, NY - The Frederic Remington Art Museum announces its 2020 New York State Juried Art Exhibit, opening on September 19, 2020. This biennial exhibition is open to any artist 18 and older working within New York State. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, August 11.

For this year’s NYS Exhibit, the Remington Museum is very pleased to have as its juror the accomplished Ottawa-based artist and teacher Mary Ann Varley. Varley has always been an artist; she can’t really remember not making drawings and paintings. Born in England immediately after the Second World War, her family promptly came to Canada. She was brought up in Nova Scotia and Ottawa. Mary Ann began teaching in 1968 in Quebec City. When she and her husband moved their young family to Ottawa, they taught at Ashbury College. Thirty years later she retired from teaching at Ashbury. She is a life long learner, with an M.A., B. Ed., and B.A. (Fine Arts). She has taught various sessions at the Ottawa School of Art at the Shenkman Arts Centre. She also manages the Old Stick Cooperative Studio. A highlight of her career was being a recipient of The City of Ottawa, City Builders award in May 2018 for her contribution to the arts. Her recent solo shows include The Crichton Street Gallery, The Good Eats Café, the Galerie Old Chelsea, and the Shenkman Arts Centre, Trinity Gallery. She has been in group shows at Galerie Electric Street Gallery, The Crichton Street Gallery, Sienna Gallery, Da Artisi Gallery, Cumberland, Ottawa Mixed Media Association (OMMA), the Ottawa School of Art, Ottawa Art Association, Frederic Remington Museum, and Arteast. The use of collage including photographs is a common technique in her work. Drawing, acrylic, oil and mixed media are her usual media.
The deadline for submission of digital images, information, and entry fee payment is Tuesday, August 11. The fee to submit up to three artworks is $15 for Museum members and $25 for nonmembers. Submission can be completed online via the online prospectus. Entries can also be submitted via email to email@example.com with a completed entry form and payment mailed to the Museum.
