Call for Work: DAG 61st Annual Juried Exhibition

The Durham Arts Guild is seeking artists to submit work for their 61st Annual Juried Exhibition. The deadline for submission is August 10th. This years show will be juried by Alice Grey Stites, Museum Director and Chief Curator of 21c Museum Hotels.

For anyone who does not know, the 21c Museum Hotel is combination museum and hotel dedicated to collecting and exhibiting 21st century art. The Durham hotel is located at the corner of Main and Corcoran and is open 24/7 365 days a year. If you've not visited yet, be sure to check it out! (The hotel is a very unique concept, and while the bar does not, at the time of this writing, serve Jack Daniels, it is still worth checking out.)

But only if you submit them! Don't delay, do it today!
The exhibit will hang in the SunTrust Gallery from Sept. 4th to Oct. 17th. and will feature not one, but TWO third Friday public receptions! That's like a two for one special. You'd be crazy to miss this opportunity. So don't be a crazy artist. Enter right away! For the all important details go here.

Keeping Up With Forum Member John Horwitz

Anyone who knows John, will know that keeping up with him isn't easy! Few of us can match his wide-ranging intellect and boundless spirit. In case anyone may not know, Johns life's work has been acquired by Perdue University for their permanent collection. It will soon be housed in a brand new 117,000 sq. ft. state-of-the art facility.

This is a fantastic honor for an absolutely gifted photographer. Those of us who have had the pleasure of John's association and discussing his work know that it is truly deserved.

"So great to receive your latest lifework incarnation (or re-incarnation). I want to let you know that we of course have plans for the fabulous collection of your work... Yours is the only photo collection I have received so far; although I may receive others, there's no way they can match your sheer creativity and success in translating that creative force into such intimate works."
- Judy Jacobi, Chancellor, Perdue University

Congratulations to John for this fantastic accomplishment!
