College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Visual and Performing Arts Department is proud to be hosting the third-annual Juried Art Show. College and high school students across the Treasure Valley are invited to submit artwork. Selected works will be displayed in the CWI Art Gallery during the College’s annual Connections Project event, April 25, and will remain on display through early September. One artist’s work, selected by a juror, will receive the Connection’s Excellence Award and be honored during the awards ceremony. The selected artist will additionally receive a $100 prize.
Last year, the exhibition was honored to have John McMahon, the Artist Services Director for the Idaho Commission on the Arts and a professional artist, serve as juror. McMahon selected 17 works to be featured at the Connections Project event selecting “Til We Part Media”, a drawing of a swinging bench by Rheanna Danes, as the winner of the 2018 Juried Art Show.
Dan Scott, a professional artist and Art Department Chair at Boise State University, has been selected as the juror for this year’s Juried Art Show.
