SONY DSCEvery two years, Rochester’s oldest and longest-running juried exhibition showcases the talents of emerging and established artists from a 27-county region.

This year’s show features 68 works by 46 artists—including 23 who are new to Finger Lakes. They were chosen from a field of 920 entries by 330 artists by juror Michael Rooks, Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art.

These artists are eligible for nine cash awards, among them the $1,500 Memorial Art Gallery Award, selected by the juror; the Alice Koret Award, presented by museum docents; and the Harris Popular Vote Award, selected by visitors during the first two weeks of the exhibition. see the list of award winners

Sponsored by M&T Bank, with additional support provided by the Elaine P. and Richard U. Wilson Foundation, the Rubens Family Foundation, and the Margaret Davis Friedlich and Alan and Sylvia Davis Memorial Fund.
