This summer 140 works of art were submitted to the Huron River Art Collective for our 2021 Summer Juried Exhibit. Our esteemed juror, Vianna Szabo, P.S.A. IAPS EP P.S.W.C DP, was asked to select 50 of those works to include in this online exhibit. From the 50 works, she selected 4 honorable mentions as well as first, second, and third place awards. The show was available on our website through August 30th, 2021.
During our reception, via Zoom, Vianna highlighted the variety of artwork submitted.
“What I really enjoyed about the images that came was that they were very diverse. There was sculpture, there was weaving, there were a lot of beautiful paintings, beautiful photography. And, every artist has their own voice.”
Today we want to celebrate the diversity of work in the Collective and share the works selected with you. In addition to the slideshow below, we posted selected works on our Facebook page and Instagram account. We are also sharing the very informative reception, which was recorded on zoom.
