Michael Cornfeld To Be Juror For Spring Exhibition

The Renaissance Art Gallery announces juror for its Spring Fine Arts Exhibition, “Color Complements”. Michael Cornfeld, retired chairman of Marshall Universities Art Department, and one-time director of the Birke Art Gallery, has agreed to act as juror for this spring’s Fine Arts Exhibition. Mr. Cornfeld is himself an award-winning artist.

The challenge this spring is for artists to take a primary color and its complement and use these as a foundation for a work of art. This exhibition is open to all adult artists, 18 years old and older. All fine art media are welcome. Any artist interested in participating in this event should contract The Renaissance Art Gallery. Prospectus is available at the gallery or on line on The Renaissance Art Gallery’s website: www.orgsites.com/wv/renaissance.

Mentoring for this event is available. All work submitted to the gallery will be hung. The exhibition will hang for the month of May and includes an opening reception for the artists and general public. The Renaissance Art Gallery is handicapped accessible.

The Renaissance Art Gallery hosts a changing array of innovative shows along with the regular display of gallery member’s work. All work is original and done by local artists. In addition The Renaissance Art Gallery offers a range of fine arts classes for both adults and children in many media. Check out the Class list on the website or come in and talk to on of our artists.
