For 44 years now, Associated Artists has coordinated and hosted Dimensions - a national juried fine art show with work selected by an independent (hired) juror from another organization, museum, or gallery with a strong reputation in the art world. This year is no different. Our juror, Robert Lange, owner of Robert Lange Studios in Charleston SC, has been featured in numerous fine art publications over the past 2 years. His Charleston gallery has been incredibly successful, enabling him to move and double his space this past fall. We are thrilled, honored really, to be working with him. (thanks Robert!)

Robert arrived in Winston-Salem yesterday afternoon and chose the awards for Dimensions 2010. VERY strong show! Great comments these past few days, and the staff just loves walking into the gallery amidst such wonderful artwork! (kudos for our fabulous show chair, the amazing Vicki Schober, and our even-more-fabulous Installations Dude, Mister Dennis Millsaps for their great work in getting it on the walls. Well done, friends! Well done.)

This morning Lange spent time with 10 different artists, offering individual one-on-one portfolio reviews. Everyone I spoke with had positive feedback on this process adn gained a lot of insight and inspiration from his comments. One artist told me she just wanted to run home and start painting!

Ahh but tonight...

Tonight we open the show! A reception for Dimensions will be held this evening (Thursday April 8th) from 5-7pm at the Associated Artists' Gallery. We'll have food and wine and other reception essentials, as well as the important parts such as juror comments, show chair remarks, and the presentation of awards.

Oh yes. Awards! As if having a piece in, 79 from 400 entries, were not cool enough - there is the $1000 first prize, cash, to the 1st place piece.

Here are a few sneak peaks at the show:
