Jasper Community Arts is pleased to announce its 27th ANNUAL JURIED ART EXHIBITION in the Krempp Gallery at the Jasper Arts Center. The show runs from September 2-27, 2020. The exhibit includes a wide variety of media and techniques: watercolor, oil, acrylic, prints, photography, collage, sculpture, and graphite. The exhibit consists of two and three-dimensional work. Only artists from Indiana, its contiguous states or former residents could apply.

Due to COVID-19, there will not be an Opening Reception. However, Jasper Community Arts will post a pre-recorded Discussion and Awards with the Juror via Jasper Community Arts Facebook page on Thursday, September 3rd, at 5:00pm. $2,000 in prize monies will be awarded in the categories of BEST OF SHOW, AWARD OF EXCELLENCE, HIGH HONOR AWARD and five HONORABLE MENTIONS.

Andy Jendrzejewski, Co-Founder of Art Space Vincennes, LLC, is a sculptor living and working in Vincennes, IN. His work ranges over many media. Over the years he has welded and cast metals, created clay figurative sculptures, constructed found object assemblages, and created temporary monumental environmental pieces in public places. He has worked with figurative, abstract, and non-objective imagery. Unlike many sculptors, Andy is a generalist in that he not only works with many sculptural media types and styles, but also with photography, painting, drawing, and collage. The label of sculpture does not always fit. Poetry might be just as descriptive.
