Farmington art show back again

Local painter to represent Durango
Durango artist Deborah Anderson’s fused glass “War Pony Series” will be up for consideration in the second annual People’s Choice exhibition in downtown Farmington. Durango’s Maureen May is the juror for the exhibition.

The second annual People’s Choice – a unique art exhibit in downtown Farmington, is up and running. The show numbers 70 Four Corners regional artists who will show their works in 15 downtown businesses.

The exhibit will continue through the Spring Art Walk on April 4. Visitors may vote for their favorite piece, in both adult and student categories, at Three Rivers Art Center, 109 N. Allen, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Event catalogs also are available at the Art Center. Voters must be at least 16 years old (I.D. required to register).

Art may be viewed and voted on during the regular business hours of each venue through 9 p.m. April 4. An awards ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. April 5 in the Farmington Civic Center Lobby.

The artists with the most votes will win cash prizes. First prize is $1,000, second wins $750, third gets $500, and two Honorable Mentions will win $250 each.

There is also a San Juan College Student Category with Best of Show winning $250. People’s Choice – 2014 also will include a Juror’s Choice Award to be selected by Durango painter, printmaker, actress and community activist Maureen May.

People’s Choice is funded in part by the Connie Gotsch Arts Foundation, the Northwest New Mexico Arts Council, the Farmington Downtown Association, the Farmington Civic Center, The Daily-Times, the San Juan College Fine Arts Committee, George Duncan (first prize winner of People’s Choice 2013) and the Three Rivers Art Center.
