Boothbay Region Art Foundation is pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 Art in ME! juried exhibition.
Full- and part-time artists from the state of Maine were invited to submit two pieces to be considered for the exhibition. Keith Oehmig, owner and director of the Wiscasset Bay Gallery, served as juror. The first part of the completion involved selecting 68 artworks out of the 108 submitted. Oehmig was looking for artists who had an original point of view, masterful use of materials and well composed compositions. Submissions came from all over the state with the bulk coming from the Mid Coast. The quality in this show is the best that has been seen in years.
Prizes in the amount of $1,600 were awarded to seven artists. Many thanks to the Butke Gallery for their kind donation of $500 towards the prizes. In lieu of a physical reception this year, prizes were announced on Facebook on Oct. 16.
First Prize ($500) went to Winslow Myers’ “Nobleboro, Overpass and River.”
