"53rd Annual National Exhibition of the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic"
2006-07-21 until 2006-09-17
Binney and Smith Gallery, Banana Factory
Bethlehem, PA, USA United States of America

More than 80 works in casein, acrylic and egg tempera will be on display during the “53rd Annual National Exhibition of the National Society of Painters in Casein & Acrylic” at the Banana Factory, 25 W. Third St., Bethlehem, from July 22-Sept. 17.The NSPCA show, which is appearing outside of New York City for only the second time in its history, is a juried exhibition featuring works by artists from 26 states. Approximately $12,000 in cash, medals and art supplies will be awarded to artists in the show, including the new $5,000 Robert Sanstrom Prize and Medal, an award established in memory of Robert Sanstrom, the NSPCA’s esteemed associate membership chairman who passed away in 2004.

“Once again the artists in the exhibition have explored the wide range of possibilities offered by these water-based mediums,” said NSPCA President Douglas Wiltraut. “From tight realism to free flowing, non-objective approaches, they have offered for the viewing public a sense of what is being done around the country with these remarkable mediums.”

The NSPCA was founded to give artists the opportunity to exhibit works regardless of style, “school” or subject matter. It is the foremost national showcase for the two aquamedia, casein and acrylic.

Binney & Smith Gallery exhibitions are sponsored by Cornerstone Advisors, in association with The Morning Call. Gallery hours for the 53rd Annual National Exhibition of the National Society of Painters in Casein & Acrylic are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. daily. The reception and awards presentation for the show will take place Sept. 1, 6-9 p.m., as a part of the Banana Factory’s monthly First Friday celebration.

The Banana Factory is a nonprofit community arts center and gallery featuring 28 studio artists, community classrooms, a gift shop and more. The facility offers diverse outreach programs, arts-in-education programs, classes and workshops throughout the year. Its mission is “to kindle, support and celebrate the artistic, cultural and creative spirit of the Lehigh Valley.”
