Guild Hall 76th Annual Member Artists Exhibition

Guild Hall's Annual Artists Member Exhibition has just begun. This year, 453 Guild Hall member artists are participating. Unlike the museum's usual shows, the art is for sale. The artists donate 50% of the proceeds of all sales to Guild Hall. Collectors can aquire a piece of original art for as little as $25 up to $11,600 and all for a good cause.
The award juror for this year's show is Robert Storr, Professor of Painting and Dean of the School of Art at Yale University. 
Of course the ultimate jurors are the viewing public.

Theo Hios Best Landscape Award
A Guild Hall Member Artist is exactly that. A Museum member who also creates art. Some of the artists are professionals with advanced degrees and numerous gallery shows under their belts, others (like me) paint when we can. The common bond is that we all do it for the love of expressing ourselves through art. I love this show!
