Cerulean Arts' 1st Annual Juried Exhibition

Media Title

Cerulean Arts is excited to present its 1st Annual Juried Exhibition featuring 22 works by twenty artists selected by juror Stuart Shils. While most of the works chosen are oil paintings, other media include drawing, photography, collage, watercolor and acrylic paintings. The majority of the artists are from the tri-state area with a few who reside as far as North Carolina and Indiana. Shils enjoyed reviewing the submissions and about the process he states “I was reminded that painting is not dead and, that all young painters are not distracted by issues of gender, race, social irony and pretentious subject matter. Nor with what curators want, with what might sell, or with what is hip in Bushwick this weekend. I enjoyed seeing paintings expressing many aspects of joy, curiosity and very personal points of view.” Stuart Shils, a Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts alumnus and faculty member, has painted the landscape for over 25 years. A recipient of numerous grants and awards, Shils’ work has received critical review in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Art in America, The New Yorker and American Artist. An annual visiting critic at the Vermont Studio Center, Shils teaches painting across the country and abroad. Cerulean Arts’ 1st Annual Juried Exhibition is on view June 12 – July 26, 2013 and is free and open to the public. The opening reception is Friday, June 14 from 5-8 pm. Select artists will be available to answer questions about their work and juror Stuart Shils will discuss the exhibition on Sunday, June 30, 1-3 pm.
