Event Details:

The Whatcom Museum is hosting the third biennial “Bellingham National 2019 Juried Art Exhibition and Awards,” juried by art historian and independent curator, Bruce Guenther. Artists from around the country submitted artworks on the theme of “Water’s Edge: Landscapes for Today” to be considered for this exhibition. The two-dimensional artworks selected feature landscapes that serve as inspiration and motivation of the artists’ practices and aspects of their work. The artworks range from traditional interpretations of the observed landscape to the metaphoric and spiritual manifestations of the landscape through image, language, and mapping of our response to nature and the world. The top three artists will receive cash awards and the exhibition will include a “popular choice” award.
