2019 Juried Show
October 2, 2019 - January 12, 2020
A team of three jurors with professional and varied art backgrounds evaluated 100 digital artwork entries from eight states for Cedarburg Art Museum’s sixth annual juried exhibition. Sixty-eight works of 53 artists from five states were juried into the nocturnal-themed exhibition, “Night Owls.” The public is invited to attend the opening reception with artist awards on Saturday, October 5, 3:00 – 5:00pm. Festivals of Cedarburg, Inc. provided a grant of financial support for “Night Owls.“
In “Night Owls,” artists interpret the nocturnal theme with great variety, creating a bounty of nighttime artworks with human, animal, landscape, and astronomical themes. The exhibition features pencil drawing, photography, fiber art, sculpture in bronze and polymer clay, mixed media, and painting in oil, pastel, watercolor, and acrylic. Commonplace subjects take on a new perspective in the darkest hours. Some artists render mysterious or spooky interpretations while whimsy prevails for others. Numerous artists relish the muted colors of moonlight or highlight stark street lamp lighting, while still others reveal an active nightlife for humans and animals alike.
