The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show 2012 and Opening Reception

The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University is pleased to announce The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show 2012. This exhibition will open Friday, May 18 and continue through Saturday, July 21, 2011. An opening reception for the Juried Art Show will be held on Friday, May 18, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Grunwald Gallery. All events are free and open to the public. This contemporary art exhibition features paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, wearable art, metalwork, books, sculpture, fiber art, and video installations by a mix of local, national, and international artists. The artworks explore themes related to sex, gender, eroticism, reproduction, sexuality, romantic relationships, the politics of sex and gender, and the human figure. The jurors for the 2012 competition are Louise Lippincott, Curator at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Betsy Stirratt, Director of the Grunwald Gallery, and Catherine Johnson-Roehr, Curator at The Kinsey Institute. Two awards will be given to artists in the exhibition, a $300 cash prize for “Best in Show”, selected by the jurors, and a $200 award for Gallery Visitor’s Choice, which will be voted on by visitors at the reception. Although this is the seventh annual Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show, the exhibition is marking its fourth year with the Grunwald Gallery. “We are so pleased to have the opportunity to exhibit such a wide array of contemporary artwork in a gallery that is known for its cutting edge exhibitions,” says Catherine Johnson-Roehr, Kinsey Institute curator.
