Please join us for the opening reception of the Neddy at Cornish Exhibition on Wednesday, June 6, from 5 to 9 pm in our Main Gallery, 1000 Lenora Street, Floor 1.
This show marks the inaugural year of the Neddy at Cornish program, celebrating the work of a selection of artists from the region who embody the spirit of the Neddy Award. Over the last 16 years, the Neddy Award has celebrated and propelled the careers of artists who have demonstrated outstanding artistic achievement while maintaining a lively connection to their community. This exhibition features the work of all eight nominees, from both the original painting category and the new “open medium” category, now annually including artists who work in any combination of visually-based media.
Neddy in Painting: Gala Bent, Cynthia Camlin, Jeremy Mangan, and Stacey Rozich (Neddy Awardee)
Neddy in Open Medium: James Coupe, Eirik Johnson (Neddy Awardee), Lead Pencil Studio, and Susie J. Lee
The 2012 Neddy at Cornish Exhibition is both a celebration and affirmation of the accomplishments of all eight artists and the distinct creative sensibilities from our region.
Additionally celebrating the arrival of the Neddy at Cornish, we are featuring a concurrent exhibition of paintings by the award’s namesake, Ned Behnke. Curated by Peggy Weiss, Reflections brings together a selection of paintings from multiple bodies of work, over the course of Behnke’s life.
Tuesday - Friday, 12-5 pm
First Thursday, 12-7pm
