22nd Annual The View Juried Landscape Exhibition
May 31 – July 8, 2016
Reception: Thursday, June 2, 6 – 8pm
The View is a juried exhibition for artists living in Ohio and working in all media. This year, 86 artists submitted 241 pieces, from which the juror, Katherine Ryckman Siegwarth, Kettering Exhibition Coordinator and Curatorial Associate at The Dayton Art Institute, chose 40 artworks representing 39 artists. Siegwarth also selected the winners of awards totaling $1,100.
Juror Katherine Ryckman Siegwarth is the Kettering Exhibition Coordinator and Curatorial Associate at The Dayton Art Institute. Prior to The DAI, Siegwarth served as Assistant Director to Zhulong Gallery (Dallas, TX) and was the Luce Curatorial Fellow for the photography department at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (Fort Worth, TX). She has also worked at the Center for Creative Photography (Tucson, AZ) and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Siegwarth received a Master of Arts in Art History at The University of Arizona, specializing in the history of photography and museum studies.
Siegwarth wrote, “We strive for elegance, a way to seduce the viewer to stay just a moment longer, a moment we hope will take the viewer’s breath away, even for just one fraction of a nanosecond. Such is the life of an artist.”
