Artists Announced for Joshua Tree National Park Art Exposition 2017

 

Sixty-three artists have been selected for the honor of displaying their artwork in the international juried exhibition for the fifth annual Joshua Tree National Park Art Exposition in September in Twentynine Palms, CA.

 

On Friday, July 21, a panel of six jurors met and juried 290 artwork images submitted by 120 artists from across the desert, California, the U.S., British Columbia and abroad. The jury selected 63 artists and art pieces depicting or inspired by Joshua Tree National Park for this year’s show. Artwork ranged from oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, mixed media, and photography, to ceramics, assemblage, and metal sculpture.

 

One piece of art from each of the 63 artists will be displayed in the juried exhibition at the historic 29 Palms Art Gallery from Sept. 1 to Oct. 1. An awards reception will be held at the gallery on Saturday, Sept. 16, from 5 to 8 p.m.
