Work by 65 Artists chosen for 93nd Toledo Area Artists Exhibition

The Toledo Museum of Art has announced that work by 65 artists will be seen in the 93rd annual Toledo Area Artists Exhibition later this summer.

The juried show, which offers an eclectic mix of works in a variety of media, is organized by the Museum with support from the Ohio Arts Council. This year’s exhibition, which takes place Aug. 26–Sept. 25, 2011 in the Canaday Gallery, also is supported in part by Huntington Bank. Admission to both the exhibition and the Museum is free.

One of the few regional exhibitions of its kind in the nation, it is widely recognized as the most important juried show in the region. Only artists who live in Allen, Defiance, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood and Wyandot counties in Ohio, and Lenawee and Monroe counties in Michigan are eligible to enter.

This year 757 works of art were submitted for consideration. From these, 66 entries were accepted for inclusion.

Exhibition awards, including Best of Show and special prizes sponsored by the Toledo Federation of Art Societies, will be announced during opening ceremonies at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26 in the Museum’s Great Gallery.

In addition, for the first time one artist in the show will be invited to have a one-person exhibition at the Museum.

“Part of our mission as a Museum is to support the local arts community. The Toledo Area Artists Exhibition is a way we can help talented artists in our region gain wider exposure and help to launch at least one of them to a larger platform through a solo exhibition,” said Amy Gilman, associate director of the Museum.

Gilman and Toledo Museum of Art Director Brian Kennedy are serving as jurors for this year’s show.
