David Miller, Professor of Art Emeritus, Skidmore College, and Guest Juror of the Southern Vermont Arts Center's 53rd National Fall Open Exhibition, has announced the winners of this year's three Juror's Choice Awards.
The 2009 Juror's Choice Awards go to Robert K. Carsten for Cliffs at Etretat (pastel), Harold Zabady for Manhattan (oil) and John Zaccheo for Bethesda Fountain- Central Park, NYC (oil).
Professor Miller also singled out six additional pieces for Honorable Mention.
Jeffrey Braxton's Black Door (photograph), Kevin Bubriski's Ramayana Actors, India (silver gelatin print), Lisa Cueman's Hind Sight (photograph), Clarence King's The Hudson near Moreau (oil), Leslie Parke's Red and White Koi (oil) and Gregg Wapner's Deerfield River (watercolor).
"Congratulations are richly deserved by all of this year's winners," says Christopher Madkour, Executive Director of SVAC. "And our sincere thanks go to our juror, David Miller, for his outstanding work. This is an extraordinary exhibition, truly, and the fact that David felt compelled to single out six additional pieces for Honorable Mention, in addition to the three Juror's Choice Awards, is testament to that fact."
The 53rd National Fall Open Exhibition will be on display in Yester House Gallery through October 25.
All pieces in the exhibition are available for purchase, subject to prior sale. Gallery admission is free for members and children under 13, $8 for non-members, $3 for students.
