The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University is pleased to announce The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show 2013. This exhibition will open Friday, May 17 and continue through Saturday, July 13. An opening reception for the Juried Art Show will be held on Friday, May 17, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Grunwald Gallery. All events are free and open to the public. On Saturday, The Kinsey Institute will hold an open house from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, followed by a panel discussion with the artists from 2:30 to 4:30 pm in Morrison Hall, Room 007.
This contemporary art exhibition features paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, wearable art, metalwork, sculpture, fiber art, and video installations by a mix of local, national, and international artists. The artworks explore themes related to sex, gender, eroticism, reproduction, sexuality, romantic relationships, the politics of sex and gender, and the human figure. The jurors for the 2013 competition were Betsy Stirratt, Director of the Grunwald Gallery of Art, Catherine Johnson-Roehr, Curator of Art, Artifacts and Photographs at The Kinsey Institute and Nanette Brewer, the Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper at the IU Art Museum.
Although this is the eighth annual Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show, the exhibition is marking its fifth year with the Grunwald Gallery. "The Kinsey Institute is so pleased to have this opportunity to collaborate with the Grunwald Gallery each year," says Garry Milius, Associate Curator at The Kinsey Institute and organizer of the juried show, "as it enables us to accept more artworks and a wider range of media for the exhibition."
Two awards will be given to artists in the exhibit, a $300 cash prize for "Best in Show", selected by the jurors, and a $200 award for "Gallery Visitors Choice", which will be voted on by visitors during the opening reception.
The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show 2013 is part of the 113 Days of Art, a summer long festival in Bloomington, that features visual arts, music, and cinema events on the Indiana University campus.
