CALL TO ARTISTS: Members’ Juried Art Exhibit at Remington Museum
 
OGDENSBURG, NY - The Frederic Remington Art Museum will hold its 2024 Members' Juried Art Exhibit May 18 – September 7, 2024. 
 
For the 2024 Members' Juried Art Exhibit, the Museum's member artists are invited to submit up to three digital photos of their art. Artworks in all visual media using any combination of materials and techniques are welcome. Open to artists everywhere, this exhibit is the Museum’s most inclusive juried art exhibit; every artist is guaranteed to get at least one work in the show. As we look forward to a busy summer tourist season, we anticipate maximal exposure for the works on display in this exhibit.
 
Last year’s Members’ Exhibit featured 54 artworks by 40 member artists. It was a very strong show, thanks to our excellent member artists and our juror, 2023 artist-in-residence David Fadden. The Museum anticipates building upon this successful tradition in 2024, with upcoming artist-in-residence Marjorie Kaniehtonkie Skidders jurying this year’s exhibition.
 
This year’s juror, Marjorie Kaniehtonkie Skidders, a member of the Bear Clan of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation Territory, has a bachelor’s degree in art and a master’s in education that turned into a 25-year career in education as a teacher, director, Indigenous content curriculum writer, and school principal. After retiring in 2007, she returned to her roots as an artist focusing on writing and photography. Her work has been acquired by the New York State Museum; Adirondack Experience, the Museum at Blue Mountain Lake; and St. Lawrence University.
 
Kaniehtonkie is also an award-winning photographer. Among other awards, she earned first and second place at the prestigious Adirondack Mohawk and Abenaki Art Markets in 2018 and 2019. In 2021, she had a one-woman show at the Native North American Traveling College, in 2022, she won second place in the juried Ganondagan Museum’s Hodinöhsö:ni′ Art Show in photography, and in 2024 had a one-woman show at the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery at St. Lawrence University. As proud Ista of four children and twelve grandchildren, she is currently the editor of Indian Time newspaper.
 
Kaniehtonkie will choose from digital representations of up to three artworks, and will award cash prizes for “Best in Show,” 2nd, and 3rd place. A “Public's Choice” prize, a museum wrapped canvas reproduction of Evening in the Desert. Navajoes by Frederic Remington, 1905-1906, will be awarded based on an open vote, both at the Museum and online at www.fredericremington.org during the exhibit.
 
The exhibition is open to any member of the Museum. An artist who is not yet a Museum member may join when they enter their submissions. The deadline for submission of digital images, payment, and information is April 11, and can be completed via the online submission form. Entries can also be submitted via email to desmond@fredericremington.org with a completed entry form and payment mailed to the Museum.
 
The exhibit will open with a reception on Saturday, May 18 from 2:00 to 4:00pm. The reception is free, and all are welcome. The exhibit will be on display in the Richard F. Winter Gallery and the Torrey Family Galleries at the Frederic Remington Art Museum. There will be an online exhibit at www.fredericremington.org as well. Works in the exhibit may be offered for sale, with one third of the price benefitting the Museum.
