We are really proud to announce that three of the artists here at the West End Gallery have been selected to show work at the Made In NY 2013 exhibit at the Schweinfurth  Art Center in Auburn, NY.   The works and artists chosen were: A watercolor painting, Embrace, by Jennifer Fais ; an oil painting, Wind Power, from David Higgins; and  a gouache painting, Pages, from Chris Baker.

Made in NY is an annual juried exhibit that features New York State artists.  The exhibition runs from March 30 – May 12.  The Made in NY 2013 jurors were Erika Fowler-Decatur, Gallery Director at the Dowd Gallery, SUNY Cortland and Jerome Witkin, Professor in the Department of Art, Syracuse University. Jurors reviewed 556 entries by 288 artists, of which 61 were selected for the exhibition.

    Thank you, Gary.

    This was great! I’m sorry I never sent an anouncement for your special exhibit too. I’m trying to be more on top of things now.

    You may have seen the constant contact I sent yesterday: Michael Barr is “In the Limelight”. I’ll be sending one of the emails out for each artist (in alphabetical order) every 2 days (if possible). Just to give you a heads up. I know I provided artist statements for the show but I’m hoping some of the featured artists, other than Jim, have also submitted blog posts to you.
