39th ANNUAL NATIONAL JURIED COMPETITION, A SENSE OF PLACE 2019
The Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art is pleased to announce the 2019 juried fine art competition, Sense of Place. Open to participants from throughout the United States, this thirty-ninth annual event seeks to recognize the outstanding quality and diversity of work being generated by contemporary American artists.
Juror: Anne Marchand
Anne Marchand was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. She says that growing up in such a colorful environment, redolent with Spanish, French, and African influences, left a lasting impression on her color sensibility. She traveled widely throughout the South, which had a similarly profound effect on her developing visual vocabulary of form and color derived from nature. Her vibrant, colorful, large-scale abstract paintings are alive with shifting space, moving color, and animated lines and they reflect a range of perspectives.
