Remington Museum Announces Winners of Members' Juried Art Exhibit

Summer Fragrance, 2014, by Sharon H.J. Cheng, oil on canvas, 18 x 24", won the “Best in Show” award for the 2019 Members’ Juried Art Exhibit at the Frederic Remington Art Museum. Juror Rich Fedorchak said of the painting, “While I only rarely work in an abstract manner, I have always been intrigued with abstract art, its mystery and meanings. How can non-representational patterns, forms and colors elicit such a wide variety of primal emotional reactions in us? What made this painting so compelling to me was the juxtaposition of the soft gently swirling colors and the hard edged black abstract forms. It gave the work a sense of three dimensionality and movement as if these black forms are moving on a plane in front of the swirling color field. Beautifully realized.”

 

 

The Eggmen Court, 2018, by Thomas Novosel, technical pen on bristol paper, 12 x 16", won the second place award for the 2019 Members’ Juried Art Exhibit at the Frederic Remington Art Museum. Juror Rich Fedorchak said of this drawing, “Surrealism is a dominant aesthetic in my own art work, so I was naturally drawn to this artist’s work. What an imagination! But what really blew me away was the technical skill on display in this piece. So well executed. I am jealous. I wish I could draw half as well as this artist does.”

 

 

 

 

Beyond the Fence, 2018, by Gary Larsen, black and white infrared photograph, 20 x 28”, won the third place award for the 2019 Members’ Juried Art Exhibit at the Frederic Remington Art Museum. Juror Rich Fedorchak said of this photograph, “I am very fond of “old school “ black and white art photography and this is simply a gorgeous example of that aesthetic. Clouds are our world’s perpetual abstract motion picture if we take the time to look up, and what a dramatic sky is beautifully captured here. I love the sense of danger in this cloud formation. Is that the faint beginning of a funnel cloud descending on the left?”

 

 

OGDENSBURG, NY - The Frederic Remington Art Museum’s 2019 Members’ Juried Art Exhibition opened on Saturday, May 18 in the Museum’s Richard E. Winter Gallery and Torrey Family Gallery. The exhibit includes 50 artworks by 50 artists and will be on display through September 15.
