Selection and Prizes – Win a Solo Exhibition

The Museum will notify artists of the juror’s selections on or about August 10, 2020 by email. A list of accepted artists will also be posted on the Museum’s website. The Juror will select one artist as the recipient of a solo exhibition in the Museum’s River Gallery to be held during the 2020-2021 season. Additionally, a Hunterdon Art Museum prize of $100 will be awarded to one artist. The artist who is chosen for the solo member highlight exhibition must have enough work available for the time slot specified that is in ready-to-exhibit condition, and must hand-deliver the work to the Museum.
