Laurie Beth Zuckerman's Tarnished Angels memory jug is on exhibit in the fifth Annual Contemporary Art Survey show at the Lincoln Center Art Galleries. It is such an honor to be selected for this national competition by Guest Juror, Dean Sobel, Executive Director of the fabulous Clyfford Still Museum in Denver, Colorado. This is also the second year I have had my memory jugs selected for these national juried exhibitions at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins, Colorado.
The Annual Contemporary Art Survey offers a thought-provoking and eclectic array of painting, sculpture, fiber art, photography, mixed media, and installations. The exhibition is meant to be a survey—an overview of contemporary art across the country. 34 artists from 15 states were chosen from more than 600 works of art by artists in 30 states, including 7 from Fort Collins and Masonville. The exhibit opened on Friday, August 28 with an excellent gallery lecture by Dean Sobel, and a packed artists' reception.
The legendary exhibition designer, Jack Curfman, arranged this show and gave me a personal tour of his curating philosophy after I had completed installing my memory jug. I had been fortunate to work with Jack last year at the Global Village International Museum in Fort Collins on an exhibit of vintage Mexican Folk Art, where I created a large altar installation of antique Mexican dolls and saltillos. Jack assigned me a very nice space in the front area of the Lincoln Center Art Gallery for my memory jug. Below are exhibition photos from different vantage points in this beautiful glass-enclosed gallery run by Jeanne Shoaff.
The Annual Contemporary Art Survey exhibition will close October 10, 2015. Stop by if you are in Fort Collins!
