Marking the start of another year of excellence in the arts, the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild announces its annual Members’ Show for 2019, called Untitled (Members’ Show), 2019. The opening reception is on Saturday, February 2, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts. This non-juried exhibition gives voice and opportunity to the many artists among the organization’s over 600 members. The exhibition will feature the work of both well-known and emerging artists, in an array of media from the traditional to the experimental: painters and printmakers, sculptors and installation artists, photographers, digital artists, and multiple permutations along the way. Following the Arts and Crafts tradition at the root of Byrdcliffe’s historical identity, members also work in textiles, ceramics, jewelry, and wood. Member submissions are due on Tuesday January 29, with guidelines available online. Artists have the opportunity to submit one or two works to what is always a large show with high visitor numbers despite winter climes.
Every year, the members’ show at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts reflects the long-standing interdisciplinary mission set forth by Byrdcliffe’s founders in 1902. Like its Artist in Residence Program, Byrdcliffe’s annual members’ show demonstrates the sustainability of Jane and Ralph Whitehead’s multi-disciplined model that welcomed artists and craftspeople to work collaboratively and without restrictions. A Curator’s Choice award of $100 will be awarded at the reception.
