theNeuwPolitic: Artists Explore

2nd Annual Juried Regional Competition
Opening Reception:  April 1 , 5-7pm
Exhibition Dates:  April 4 – May 20, 2017


The exhibition will include works from 50 artists representing 12 counties in Northern and Central California and will explore the current political climate as each individual artist envisions it. Artworks include what the artists consider relevant to their interpretation of theNeuwPolitic, abstract or representational, functional or non-functional. Over 300 artists submitted work.

Artists were asked to consider this question: “Now is the time for a much-needed dialogue surrounding politics; can art help start these conversations and facilitate the connections that are so needed?”

The jurors are art dealer Paul Mähder of the Paul Mähder Gallery in Healdsburg, CA; and art consultant Susan Larson of Sebastopol, CA. Three cash awards will be given to the winners: $1,500 for first place, $750 for second place, and $500 dollars for third place.
Prizes will be awarded at the opening reception on Saturday, April 1 from 5-7 p.m.
