Contempo features work by a fifteen artists, who are just a sample of the individuals who have become members of the Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association (TFAA) in the past five years. The TFAA is a community of more than 275 artists dedicated to creating and exhibiting art and fine crafts in open studio settings and galleries. Our members work in a variety of visual media, including sculpture, glass, photography, jewelry, ceramics, painting, film, fiber, and more. Every year the Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association juries in new members through a rigorous multi-step process.
The seven annual membership jurors (one digital, six in-person) are chosen from a pool of museum curators, gallery owners, university professors, and successful professional artists from the mid-Atlantic area. In forming a panel of jurors, the TFAA jury committee looks to represent a diversity of artistic mediums and viewpoints. Each year brings a new panel of experts, with guarantee that the same panel will never be reassembled in its entirety.
Jurors are not given a quota of how many artists to choose, but are simply asked to select artists whom they judge to be original, well-crafted, and professional. The panel is a “blind jury” assessment, allowing for evaluation of artwork solely based on artistic merit.
Contempo is on display at Torpedo Factory Artists @ Mosaic from June 14 through July 8. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, July 16 from 4 – 8 pm.
