Every year, Hill Center hosts a Regional Juried Exhibit. This year’s show was juried by Claude Elliott, Arts Consultant and Independent Curator. Artists from the DMV were invited to submit original hanging work, in any medium, to be considered. Response from the call was significant, with 157 artists submitting over 700 pieces. Elliott selected 118 pieces for the show, all from different artists.

On Monday, February 7th, Elliott spent several hours making the tough decision on who would be awarded the First, Second, and Third Prizes, along with several Honorable Mentions.

In this event, Elliott will host a conversation between the top three prize winners: Nipun Manda (First Prize), Cheryl Foster (Second Prize), and Jay Durrah (Third Prize). The conversation will cover a wide range, touching on the artists’ process, inspiration, background, being an artist in the DMV, and more. Elliott and the artists will also discuss the value of a juried art exhibit, the selection process at Hill Center, and the challenges presented to artists in an evolving virtual landscape amongst the Covid-19 pandemic. Join us for a lively conversation between our Juror Claude Elliott and the first, second, and third place winners of this exhibition.
