Exhibition: July 1st - Sept 29th 2015
The juror, Mr. Hardesty, has made difficult decision to choose 40 works including my artwork approximately over 250 submissions for the gallery space in Eastern Washington.
Mr. Hardesty said about the exhibition, "I was honored to make selections for this year’s All Media Juried Exhibition. Assisting an organization I have much respect for made my work that much more enjoyable. While reviewing the submissions I had the good fortune to reconnect with familiar talents, while being introduced to those new to me. A juried exhibition may fail to convey the full cultural temperature of a place and time, yet it offers a partial glimpse of many creative makers – of whom our region is richly populated.”

Figure 50 Project - Juror: Cara Ober
Cara Ober was awarded an Individual Artist Grant for Painting by the Maryland State Arts Council and a Warhol Grant for Emerging Curators in 2006. From 2010-2012, she was the Online Arts and Culture editor at The Urbanite Magazine and wrote the "Eye to Eye" Arts Column in each monthly issue. She has published art reviews for Art Papers, ARTnews, The Journal of Surface Design, The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore Style Magazine, Baltimore City Paper, Art US Magazine, and numerous curatorial and catalogue essays. Ober has received Baltimore City presenting grants in ’08 and ’09 as the founder and editor-in-chief of Bmoreart, an online arts journal featuring emerging artists in Baltimore and beyond.
Figure 50 Project is a recently launched online exhibition providing access to outstanding visual artists across the country in a simple, dynamic format. One artist is selected from every state in the US to be displayed in our interactive map on a rotating basis.
With the myriad of online art resources that are either bogged down with endless mediocre art or biased toward certain trends and select cities, the fresh simplicity and unparalleled excellence of our exhibition is quickly gaining acclaim from a wide spectrum of art enthusiasts. We are continually marketing the website and our selected artists in a variety of print and online venues, with additional plans for an annual publication available on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and a host of other outlets.
In our view, the United States is still one of the leading nations in contemporary art practice and we intend to discover and showcase excellence from border to border. The highly competitive nature of our project ensures an excellent standard, while still allowing a diverse population to compete on a local level. The ongoing vision for this exhibition is to celebrate a variety of exceptional artists from diverse locations, not just the few cities typically associated with the contemporary art market.
