Hampton Arts League Open Members Exhibition 2019 opens

Sunday, January 27, 2019

This annual exhibition features artwork by many of the 300+ Hampton Arts League Members in all media, including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, crafts, sculpture, and watercolor. Artworks in a wide range of styles, content, and sensibilities will be included. As an open exhibition, it will include established artists as well as young or emerging artists. Cash awards totaling $850, including $500 First Place, $500 Beverly Levinson Award, $250 Second Place, and $100 Third Place, five Awards of Merit and five Honorable Mentions will be selected by judge, Richard Ward. Ward received his BFA and Art Education Certificate from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1982 and his MFA degree from Howard University in 1997.

Of his judging criteria Ward states, “I understand that creative processes are always as diverse as the artists who implement them and their expressions are also endless.  I appreciate the skill and craftsmanship required to develop an idea into the beautiful work that it will become.  I respect the artist’s right to express him or herself as he or she may please.  And most of all, I love the innovative approaches of the creative soul.  As I ponder these attributes and the world in which we live, the beauty and fascination of art leaves me inspired; and I am humbled.  I therefore pledge to assess each work with respect, sensitivity and due diligence."
