The Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art is pleased to announce the 2019 juried fine art competition, Sense of Place. Open to participants from throughout the United States, this thirty-ninth annual event seeks to recognize the outstanding quality and diversity of work being generated by contemporary American artists.
Founded in 1937 and housed in the historic Nicholas Ware mansion (c. 1818), the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art (GHIA) is Augusta's only independent nonprofit visual arts school and gallery. The Institute serves as a showcase for local, regional, and national artists, offering rotating exhibitions of outstanding contemporary artwork year-round. In addition, professionally taught studio art classes in a wide variety of media are provided to students of all ages and experience levels.
Juror: Anne Marchand
Anne Marchand was born in New Orleans. She majored in art at Auburn University, graduating with a BA in 1971, and then earned an MFA from the University of Georgia in 1975. Her early artistic focus was the figure, and she was especially drawn to the work of Francis Bacon for his expressive paintings of the human body.
2D and 3D media
The 2019 juried fine art competition is open to all US artists age 18 and older. All works must be original, not previously exhibited at the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, and completed on or after June 1, 2017.
