Karin Clarke Gallery, located at 760 Willamette Street in downtown Eugene, is now accepting submissions for the 2018 Eugene Biennial, a juried show celebrating exceptional art of our region. This year’s jurors are Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art Curator Danielle Knapp, Artist and retired Lane Community College Art Instructor Craig Spilman, and Gallerist Karin Clarke. Prizes are being sponsored by local businesses, which include a $500 first prize donated by Blunt Graffix, three $250 Jurors Choice Awards sponsored by Oregon Arts Supply, Whiteaker Printmakers, and the Duck Store, and a $300 award given by Watershed Arts. In addition, award winners will receive memberships to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, and will be invited for a follow-up exhibit at Karin Clarke Gallery in August of 2019.
This is the second Eugene Biennial that has been hosted at Karin Clarke Gallery. In 2016, the gallery had over 300 submissions and 33 artists were selected. The gallery is excited to see what talent will emerge in this year’s submissions!
