Every year The Bowery Gallery hosts a Juried Competition which is open to all artists working in two-dimensional media. Past jurors have included prominent artists such as William Bailey, Rackstraw Downes, Paul Resika and Joan Snyder, and eminent critics like Jed Perl, David Cohen, and Stephan Westfall.
Our juror this year was Martica Sawin, Art historian and critic Martica Sawin has spent a half century covering contemporary art in print and in the classroom. She has written more than 100 essays on contemporary artists for exhibition catalogues and art magazines and has authored a number of monographs on artists including Wolf Kahn, Nell Blaine, and Yves Tanguy.
