The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University is pleased to announce The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show 2012. This exhibition will open Friday, May 18 and continue through Saturday, July 21. An opening reception for the Juried Art Show will be held on Friday, May 18, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Grunwald Gallery. All events are free and open to the public.
This contemporary art exhibition features paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, wearable art, metalwork, sculpture, fiber art, and video installations by a mix of local, national, and international artists. The artworks explore themes related to sex, gender, eroticism, reproduction, sexuality, romantic relationships, the politics of sex and gender, and the human figure. The jurors for the 2012 competition were Louise Lippincott, Chief Curator at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Betsy Stirratt, Director of the Grunwald Gallery, and Catherine Johnson-Roehr, Curator of Art, Artifacts and Photographs at The Kinsey Institute.
Although this is the seventh annual Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show, the exhibition is marking its fourth year with the Grunwald Gallery. “The Kinsey Institute is so pleased to have this opportunity to collaborate with the Grunwald Gallery each year,” says Garry Milius, Associate Curator at The Kinsey Institute and organizer of the juried show, “as it enables us to include so many more artists in our exhibition.”
Two awards will be given to artists in the exhibit, a $300 cash prize for “Best in Show”, selected by the jurors, and a $200 award for “Gallery Visitors Choice”, which will be voted on by visitors during the opening reception.
The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show 2012 is part of the 113 Days of Art, a summer long festival in Bloomington, that features visual arts, music, and cinema events on the Indiana University campus.
