Discovery Fire Banner

January 17th – February 7th, 2015

Our annual discovery juried exhibition provides exposure to emerging artists. The jurors, artist Joan Skeet, Seymour Art Gallery’s Curator/Director Sarah Cavanaugh, and Interim Curator Dr. Hilary Letwin have selected artists to exhibit. Each has created a piece that reflects our theme: FIRE. The result is a fresh and eclectic show, with the artists presenting work that is as varied as their backgrounds; encompassing painting, ceramics, glass, mixed media, and photography.

One artist will be presented with the Carole Badgley Emerging Artist Award, with a cash prize of $300 furnished by the SAG, and honorable mentions will also receive prizes.

Exhibiting Artists: Anson Aguirre Firth, Larissa Blokhuis, Kiranjot Bal, Shane Bourgeois, Tieabow,
Heather Curry, Dorothy Doherty, John Duncan, Karisa Evdokimoff, Michael Fitzsimmons, Judith Frigon, Joan Gauthier, Monica Gewurz, Faye Gordon-Lewis, Denise Grams, Alissa Kim Tjen, Suzanne Laird, Mena Martini, Gabriele Maurus, Marion Maxwell, Jaime Murdoch, Joyce Ozier, Karen Santos, Shamina Senaratne, Peter Sickert, Bill Stewart, and Jeff Wilson.
