The 7th annual juried exhibition, opening reception will be held on June 5, 2015 during downtown Fort Myers River District Art Walk. Our Annual Juried Art Exhibition has asked artists to explore Art of the Heart, to explore both the physiological heart as well as art that speaks to what is at the core of their being. The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located at 2301 First Street, in the downtown Fort Myers River District.
Art will be provocative, examining passion, essence, heartbreak, love, and loss. While there are no specific guidelines for dimensions or sizes of the pieces that will be accepted for exhibit, the curator encourages innovative and unique installations - unconventional media and art work of immense proportions can be hung from either its massive walls or from its 20-foot ceiling, or displayed on its magnificent granite floors.
A panel of arts professionals and collectors will review the pieces submitted to the exhibition. Pieces submitted to the exhibition should fit the call to artists and the artist statements submitted should serve to explain how those pieces fit. All work may be accepted or rejected for display at the discretion of Florida Arts, Inc. On June 5, 2015, a special panel of jurors will select the winner of the Best In Show. All properly prepared entries will be viewed and judged. The decision of the jurors is final. The winning piece will be announced at the Opening Reception.
Jurors: Artist Marcus Jansen, Art Collector Fran Fenning, FGCU Art Professor Mary Voytek
The Best in Show and Berne’s Pick winners will be announced in the e-newsletter.
The People’s Choice winner will be announced on June 19, 2015 during Music Walk.
