What really happens in the jurying process? How does the juror decide which pieces are in, and which are out? Come learn the answers to these questions and more at this year’s Art Maui Symposium, “The Art of the Juror.”
An eminent panel of artists, educators, and curators will take you behind the scenes of juried art shows in the state of Hawaii. Participating will be Allison Wong, Deputy Director of the Honolulu Academy of Arts; Thomas Klobe, juror for Art Maui 2012, Professor Emeritus, and Director of the University Hawaii Art Gallery; Lauren Harris, Gallery Director of the Paia Contemporary Gallery; and Dick Nelson, 22-year Chair of the Punahou Art Department, Founding member of the Hawaii State Art Museum, and Trihue Visionary.
In lively discussion, the panel will address myths and urban legends about the jurying process and explore the important role of jurors in the development of an artist’s career. They’ll discuss common dos and don’ts, juried shows available throughout the state, and the connection of the Hawaii State Foundation for the Arts to juried shows. There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions too. What you learn may allow you to drop your fears about entering juried shows, and widen your opportunities to show your art in Art Maui and other juried exhibitions.
Every year, the Art Maui Board of Directors puts on a symposium to give Maui artists a chance to deepen their knowledge of an important topic in the art world.
The “Art of the Juror” Symposium will be held on Saturday, January 14, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Alexa Higashi Meeting Room at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. We hope to see you there!
