The 2017 edition of ATHICA’s annual juried exhibition opens on Saturday, September 23, 2017 and runs through November 12, 2017. Guest Juror Harry H. DeLorme, Jr., New Media and Education Curator, Telfair Museums, Savannah, Georgia selected 34 works by 36 artists from over 175 works in competition, stating, “As a juror I was impressed by the quality of submissions, the range of media represented from photography to fiber arts, and in particular the number of video and media works to choose from for this exhibition.”
Surprising, thought-provoking, oblique, and intuitive, the selected works include video and interactive media, painting, photography, sculpture, a collection of Communist Manifestos, a portrait of the United States in junk food, and more. DeLorme will be present at the opening reception on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 6-9 to talk about the work, as will many of the artists.
