June 8-22: The Columbus Artists' Guild’s 2013 Member Exhibition

May 24, 2013 

Some of the best work from local artists will be on display at The Columbus Artists' Guild’s 2013 Member Exhibition June 8 through June 22 at CSU’s Illges Gallery in the Corn Center, corner of Dillingham Street and Front Avenue. Exhibit hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. The public is invited to the Opening Reception and Awards Presentation on Saturday, June 8 from 6-8 p.m. It’s free.

Stan Anderson, Associate Professor of Graphic Design and Director of Graduate Studies at Georgia State University’s Department of Art, has been selected to judge the Columbus Artists’ Guild’s 2013 Member Exhibition.

The 2013 show is number sixty-three in a series that began in 1950. The Annual Members Exhibition is an essential part of the Guild’s ongoing program to stimulate participation in the creation of art by its members and to raise the level of art awareness in the general public, especially regarding the high level of excellence among local artists. The Guild Show will encompass a wide variety of styles, genres, and media. Most of the art works will be available for purchase.

The Artists’ Guild boasts over two hundred members, approximately one hundred of whom are expected to enter the 2013 Show. Each member is allowed to submit one piece of art for inclusion in the show. A new departure in the 2013 Show is the establishment of Amateur and Professional Divisions, with individual members choosing which category to enter. The Guild’s cash awards to Best of Show, First, Second and Third Places will be restricted to the Professional Division. Ribbons will be awarded to both Divisions, with Patron Awards assigned to both Divisions at the discretion of the judge.
