Curating 64th Art of the Northeast
May 27, 2014
Begun in 1949 as the "New England Exhibition," the competition was founded by Silvermine Guild Members Miriam Brody and Revington Arthur to showcase the art of the region. Over the years, the exhibit has presented works by emerging and under-known artists, giving them a platform to reach a much larger audience than ever before.
Utilizing all of our galleries, AoNE is a prestigious and popular annual exhibition, and a focal point of the Center's calendar year. In 2014, artists from Washington. D.C to Maine have submitted over 500 entries. The winner receives a top prize of $3,000 and a solo exhibition at Silvermine Arts Center.
Well-known curators of AoNE have included art critics, artists, curators and directors representing major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, The New Museum and the Whitney Museum. This year, our curator is Andrew Russeth, Art Critic for the New York Observer, Gallerist and 16 Miles of String.
