GAMBOL: Art League Houston's Second Annual Juried Exhibition
Art League Houston announces the selection of artworks by 30 artists for the 2nd annual Gambol, our juried exhibition of work by Texas artists. Mary McCleary, 2011 Texas Artist of the Year, curated the main gallery exhibition of paintings, sculptures, drawings and mixed media from more than 400 submitted artworks. On Friday, December 2nd at 7 p.m. at the Art League, McCleary will award the 2011 Gambol for Visual Art..
In a change from 2010, the Art League will display one artwork by each of the more than 180 Art League members who submitted to the Gambol. The works will be presented in tightly packed, salon-style on the walls of the project gallery, hallways and studios. The curated exhibition of finalists and the salon-style display will be open, free to the public, between December 2 - 30, 2011.
Presenting works by hundreds of artist members and curating a selective exhibition by renowned artist and educator Mary McCleary matches our goal of broad participation while identifying artistic excellence. Through the Gambol and all our programs, the Art League advocates for the expansion of the number of people who have decided to be visual artists as a profession or a passion.
There is no such thing as too many artists.
Below are the finalists and winners for the 2011 Gambol for Visual Art with its $1,000 cash prize and are exhibited in the main Art League gallery.
