Join us in celebrating the 60th Annual Hammond Art Guild Open Judged Exhibition—an outstanding showing of fine art by guild members and regional artists. Works on display will be judged in four categories: 2-D, 3-D, print and image development. During the opening reception, enjoy wine and cast your vote for your favorite work for the “People’s Choice Award.”
The exhibition will open to the public with a reception on Friday, August 5th from 5-8 p.m. and will be on display through August 26.
This year's exhibition was judged by artist Joel Blazek. A product of the 60’s counterculture, Blazek started painting and showing his art at age 11 in the French Quarter, studying with contemporary artist Zella Funk. Most of his career he has worked in 2-dimensional media both as an artist and photographer, moving on to 20 years in the graphic arts industry and finally 25 years in textile industry, designing and creating consumer and industrial products.
