INT'L AM 2022


The Juried Exhibitions at Minot State University have been through numerous changes. In 1969, the National Print and Drawing Show held its first call for entries. The 1980s brought the National Works on Paper Exhibition to artists across the USA. A look forward to the new millennium in the 1990s re-titled the exhibitions to Americas 2000 with the inaugural All Media exhibition held in 1993. Now, to better represent our multi-country appeal and entrants, we introduce INT'L All Media 2022. In this 28th year, it is our honor to invite you to share your works and your passion for art from across the world.

For this exhibition there were 187 all media artworks entered, yet only about 40 to be selected for the exhibition. This process is difficult for me as the juror because of the quality and worthiness of the submissions. I want to thank each artist for participating and for making outstanding work.

The artworks submitted highlight this moment in time in our world and all the happenings surrounding the environment, the human condition, power constructs, and issues surrounding equality and good versus evil, beauty and the abject. These artists are the conduit for truth, historical documentation, and expression of what is currently happening in our world.

The artworks selected for the exhibition weigh heavily in the representational style; therefore, as the juror I was able to create an exhibition that is telling the viewer a story about the world around us today with a serious and keen lens and moments of humor. Representational-style artwork is often instantly relatable to the viewer. Artworks that depict beauty and the abject while depicting a range of emotion with honesty were a natural selection for me. I selected a few artworks in hopes to create moments of pause throughout the exhibition to allow the viewer to rest their eyes on something that may not be contextually as serious yet is technically superb. In my professional opinion all the artists selected are obviously technically skilled in their medium and technique. It was such a pleasure for me to be a part of this process and gain great insight and appreciation for all the artists who submitted to this exhibition. Congratulations.
