SAC members' talents to
be on display in 11th show
by CHRIS GRAY
Observer Staff Writer
The varied talents of local artists will open the 2013 year for the Starkweather Arts Center.
The 11th Annual Member's Exhibition will begin on Friday, Feb. 1 with an opening reception to be held from 6-8 p.m. The exhibit will run through Feb. 23.
Kristin Barr, gallery director, said the show is a great way to show local artists that they can be a part of the art community in the Romeo area, whether they're students or professionals.
"This is kind of a way for us to let our members know we appreciate them, and people who aren't members can come in and see what Starkweather is all about," she said.
Barr said because of the support of members, the art center does so well, and credits a recent membership drive to a larger number.
"Membership is going well, we've definitely increased over the past few years," she said.
Each member is permitted to enter one piece into the show, but can submit up to three. This year's show will feature more than 30 entries, including everything from pastels and acrylics to glass and ceramic pieces. The exhibit is expected to take up both floors of the art center's gallery.
This year's membership show will be juried by Starkweather member Anni Coulter-Boggs. Aside from the one piece every member can feature, she will determine whether additional entries from the members will make the cut.
Coulter-Boggs will also decide which pieces earned first, second and third place as well as an honorable mention.
"She is a really talented artist, and I'm excited to have her jury the show," Barr said.
Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served at the opening reception, which is free to the public. The Starkweather Arts Center is located at 219 N. Main Street and is open from Thursdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
