As we have previously mentioned, it’s time for our Annual Prize. Every issue of New American Paintings features two “Noteworthy” artists, one selection made by our editorial staff, and the other by the issue’s juror. Those twelve artists are automatically in the running to receive top prize, which includes cash, a gift certificate sponsored by BLICK Art Materials, and a chance to have their work displayed at the Next Art Chicago fair. If you haven’t already voted for our Reader’s Choice component, you have until January 7th! The winner will be announced January 13th.
For the second component, the winner will be determined by a panel of distinguished curators. The panel for the Annual Prize consists of three previous NAP jurors who have not made selections in the last year, including Bill Arning, Director, The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH), James Rondeau, Curator and Chair of Contemporary Art, Art Institute of Chicago, and Peter Boswell, Senior Curator, Miami Art Museum. The winner of the Curator’s Choice will be announced on January 20th.
Noteworthy artists of 2011 nominated for the award included: William Betts, Joe Bussell, Jeremy Couillard, Marcus Jansen, Marcus Kenney, Erik Parker, Erin Payne, Josh Reames, Daniela Rivera, Brion Nuda Rosch, Maja Ruznic, Ann Toebbe.
