The 98th Annual Open Juried Show by The New Rochelle Art Association

The 98th Annual Open Juried Show will take place at The Lumen Winter Gallery at The New Rochelle Public Library, Sept. 21 – Oct. 26, 2013. The awards reception will take place on Saturday, September 28, 5:30-7:30 p.m. to correspond with the city-wide celebration ArtsFest.

nraa.jpgThe New Rochelle Art Association turned 100 last year, but our annual tradition of juried shows isn't quite that old. We're proud to celebrate our 98th year of our showcase of the best of the region. We are open to artists of all styles and all media. We have featured artists fresh out of school and others who are long established, artists working in traditional styles and media, and others who push the boundaries.

This year's show will be judged by Lisa Cooper, who is the director and founder of Elisa Contemporary Art, Riverdale's only Contemporary Art gallery. She believes in the power of art to heal children's lives and has also been an active volunteer and supporter of Free Arts NYC, a non-profit organization that works with families in the New York region. Lisa has curated exhibits in public and private spaces throughout the tri-state area.

Mission Statement
The New Rochelle Art Association was founded in 1912  “to further the interest in Art in the Community, to establish through public exhibitions an educational standard in the Fine Arts, to safeguard the public interest in matters pertaining to the Fine Arts, to improve the administration of the public departments relating to the Fine Arts and to interest itself in all matters pertaining to the practice of the Fine Arts in Painting, Sculpture, Illustration, Crafts, Photography, and Digital Art.”
