9th Annual International Juried Exhibition on display


The A.D. Gallery is pleased to present the 9th Annual International Juried Exhibition.   

This year’s theme is ‘Empathy.’ Interpretations of the theme of ‘Empathy’ were welcomed in a variety of media, subjects, and approaches. Artists were invited to submit two-dimensional, three-dimensional, installation or digital media (including video based media).  

The exhibition is on display through October 20. A reception will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on October 10.

The work on show in the gallery represents a wide range of subjects and approaches to the theme including photography, mixed media, abstraction, and traditional figurative painting.

This year’s participating artists include:

Randy Akers, Keavy Handley-Byrne, Marcy Chevali, Gary Duehr, Ruth Jeyaveerran, Michael Koerner,Dong Kyu Kim, Florence McEwin, Rosemary Meza, Yvonne Petkus, Kate Shannon, Cara Smelter, Mark Stephenson, Chad Thompson, Dominique Vitali, and Katherine Wildman.

All participating artwork was selected by this year's juror, Ling-Wen Tsai. Ling-Wen Tsai's practice spans a broad range of media, and her work has taken the form of installation, performance, video, photography, painting, drawing, and combinations of these media. Ling-Wen exhibits her work nationally and internationally.

She is a professor at Maine College of Art.
