Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 28 from 6pm to 8pm
Hill Center Galleries presents their annual Hill Center Galleries Regional Juried Exhibition from June 28-October 1, 2017. Featuring over 100 artists from DC, Virginia and Maryland, the exhibition was judged by Claude L. Elliott, Curator and Arts Consultant. An opening reception with the artists will be held on June 28, from 6-8 p.m. At the opening reception, three cash prizes of $1000, $750, and $500 and five honorable mentions will be awarded.
According to Elliott, “My goal is to create a compelling and exciting exhibition that features as many works as space allows. The selection criteria include artistic sensibility, personal vision, execution, soulfulness and insightfulness. Most important is the power of the image and its emotional impact.”
