Announces 10th Annual Juried Show

Celebrating the Tenth Juried Show, AOY Art Center announced that Amanda Burdan, Senior Curator of the Brandywine River Museum of Art, will serve as the Juror!

A specialist in American art, Amanda has organized many exhibitions on the fine and decorative arts of the United States.

Ms. Burdan joined the curatorial staff of the Brandywine River Museum of Art in 2012 and previously worked in the curatorial departments at the Florence Griswold Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art.

She earned her Master’s Degree and PhD at Brown University in Art history with a minor in printmaking.

“We are excited to invite area artists to participate in AOY’s 10th Juried Show. I’m sure it will once again feature some of the very best artists from our area,” said Rich Fekete, AOY Shows Chairperson. “This exhibition is unique in that non-members can participate. It always ends up being incredibly varied in both media and individual artist approaches.”

Artists have until April 1st to enter. Entry information and prospectus can be found at aoyarts.org.

The public is invited to enjoy the artists’ reception on Friday evening April 22, from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the AOY Art Center on Patterson Farm, 949 Mirror Lake Road, Yardley.

The Gallery will be open to visitors Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from April 23 to May 15, noon to 5:00pm. All artwork is for sale and may also be viewed and purchased online after the opening on April 22.

“At the Ninth Juried Show, 113 artists from five states submitted over 290 pieces and only 99 of those were selected making this show one not to be missed!” continued Fekete.

AOY is awarding cash prizes of $1,000, $500 and $250. Jerry’s Artarama of Lawrenceville will also provide prizes for the Honorable mention categories.
