As usual, the Hunting Art Prize folks have announced this year’s jury shortly after the deadline for submissions (which was November 30), so that entrants wouldn’t waste time trying to figure out the juror’s preferences. Artists who sent in their single entries in hopes of winning the $50,000 award and now want to fret about whether they sent in the right image can do some research on these jurors:
Adam Justice, Curator of Art at the Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida, Amy Moorefield, Deputy Director of Exhibitions at the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia, and Julien Robson, Curator of the Shands Collection in Louisville, Kentucky.
The award is the largest prize in its category in North America. Open to legal Texas residents, the competition accepts a single image of a drawing or painting only. The jury will make their cuts (usually to a list of over 100) and make an announcement of finalists (usually in early March). The 2015 winner will be announced at the Hunting Art Prize gala on May 2 in Houston.
