American Art Collector - - Art Show Preview -

The Amer­i­can Im­pres­sion­ist So­ci­ety was founded in 1998 with a mis­sion to pro­mote the ap­pre­ci­a­tion of im­pres­sion­ism by host­ing ex­hi­bi­tions, work­shops and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams. One of its pre­mier events is the an­nual Na­tional Juried Ex­hi­bi­tion, which is now in its 19th year, fea­tur­ing mem­ber work that has been se­lected specif­i­cally to be dis­played in the ex­hi­bi­tion. This year’s show, held Septem­ber 27 through Oc­to­ber 28, will take place at the Penin­sula School of Art’s Guen­zel Gallery in Fish Creek, Wis­con­sin.

On view will be 170 juried pieces that range in sub­ject mat­ter, but all are done in the clas­sic Amer­i­can im­pres­sion­ist style that is de­fined by loose brush­strokes and a painterly qual­ity. Among the artists in this year’s show are Gary Hu­ber, Jane Chapin, Joanne Laven­der, Mar­jorie

Hicks, San­dra Cor­pora, Stephanie Amato, Su­san Sar­back and Kay Crain. There works will in­clude moun­tain­ous land­scapes, lake­side scenes, still lifes and in­te­ri­ors. In ad­di­tion to the juried paint­ings, there will be 20 works dis­played from AIS Masters, of­fi­cers and founders. In­cluded will be AIS Pres­i­dent and CEO De­bra Joy Groesser’s Morn­ing Has Bro­ken, Ephraim Beach.

Thurs­day, Septem­ber 27, the Door County-based art cen­ter will host the awards re­cep­tion from 5 to 8 p.m. Dur­ing the show, more than $65,000 in cash and prizes will be doled out in­clud­ing a $12,000 cash prize for Best of Show. Serv­ing as the Judge of Awards is Dawn Whitelaw, who also will present a work­shop from Septem­ber 24 to 26 and a paint­ing demon­stra­tion on Septem­ber 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. To con­clude the fes­tiv­i­ties will be an allmem­ber paint out and com­pe­ti­tion on Septem­ber 29, with a Wet Room Show and Sale from 4 to 6 p.m.
