The Woodmere Annual: 73rd Juried Exhibition
June 14 – September 1, 2014
The exhibition will feature works in a wide variety of media from artists living within 50 miles of the Museum. Works will be selected to create a cohesive presentation that explores contemporary themes and ideas within the arts of Philadelphia. The exhibition will be juried by artist Sarah McEneaney. In conjunction with this exhibition, some of McEneaney’s own work will be on view, and the artist will select objects for display from Woodmere’s collection that relate to the show’s themes.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated digital catalogue. Recent examples of Woodmere digital exhibition catalogues can be found by following the link below.
