"The Florida Biennial"
2008-06-06 until 2008-08-24
Museum of Florida Art
Deland, FL, USA United States of America

The Florida Biennial is an exhibition that has grown from a local museum member's exhibit into an important venue for artists across the state. As the Museum of Florida Art continues to expand in scope and reach, the Florida Biennial juried exhibition plays an vital part in this process by providing exhibition opportunities to a variety of artists working in a wide range of mediums. This year over 90 Florida artists provided submissions for jury. 61 artists were chosen. The exhibition runs from June 6 through August 24, 2008. The Florida Biennial IV was juried by Frank Holt, Director of the Mennello Museum of American Art in Orlando, Florida. Selected for the exhibition is Cecil Herring, who has marketed her work with an absolutearts.com Portfolio since 2007

Distinguished jurors have curated exciting exhibitions over the years that are both beneficial to the participating artists and to the public. Selected artists often primere work in this exhibt. Discoveries of new techniques and approaches to the creative process often occur with exhibitors while the public is rewarded with a diverse collection of imagery, mediums, and styles of artistic expression. This exposure can lead to a greater appreciation of art in general or to increased interest in a particular artist.

This year's juror is Frank Holt, Director of the Mennello Museum of American Art in Orlando, Florida. As with previous jurors, Mr. Holt brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his decision making. Jurors are often introduced to new talent through this process which can lead to further developments in an artist's career beyond to Florida Biennial. Frank Holt will also give a gallery talk thus furthering an aesthetic dialogue.

The educational potential for each Florida Biennial is another beneficial aspect of these distinctive exhibitions. Any one of the mediums presented is a starting point for learning more. This exhibit is scheduled to coincide with the Museum of Florida Art's summer Camp Create for children where they will be able to experience first hand creations done by accomplished artists. This art exposure shows numerous fantastic possibilities. Many times, the mediums used by exhibiting artists are inspirational of student experimentation. Participating artists in the Florida Biennial will many times offer demonstrations, talks or lead workshops for young students and adults alike.

The Florida Biennial introduces the Museum of Florida Art, DeLand and the surrounding area to many artists here for the first time. This venue reaches out to more artists and museum visitors than any other exhibit on our schedule. We would like to thank oue sponsors as well as all of artists, who submitted work, congratulate all who were accepted and welcome new visitors.
