DESCRIPTION

Art of the Northeast, in its 61st year, is one of the most anticipated regional juried shows of the year at the Silvermine Guild Arts Center, traditionally drawing over 1200 entries, and open to all media and artists throughout New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  This year’s juror is Katie Rashid, Director of the Jack Shainman Gallery in New York.  Throughout its history Art of the Northeast (AONE), originally called Art of New England,  has been a showcase for many emerging artists who have gone on to receive national acclaim.  Jurors have included curators and directors of major galleries and museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MOMA and the Whitney Museum.

Art of the Northeast 2010 marks the 61st anniversary of this distinguished exhibition. This year’s display showcases 64 works by 47 artists who reside and work throughout the Northeast. The selection made for this year’s AoNE sheds light on the diversity of the submissions and work being made in the region. Some of the overarching themes that emerged through Ms. Rashid’s selection are an interest in craft, abstraction, surrealism, and an interest in the figure. There are also performative and political undercurrents running through the exhibition.
