Theme: Overlooked

Many things in our world are slighted, ignored, rejected, discarded. This exhibition calls attention to that which is overlooked. Whether they are objects, beings or emotions, through the artist's interpretation, Overlooked is given new meaning. They can thus be noted, appreciated or cherished - as if time paused, and we take a deep breath and marvel at the true nature of what is before us. Entries may include traditional media, as well as installation, video, kinetic, sound and/or performance art.

Juror:

Liza Key Strelka is Manager of Exhibitions at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC. Since joining the Phillips in 2011, she has overseen the installation of exhibitions such as Marking the Infinite: Contemporary Women Artists from Aboriginal Australia, Renoir and Friends: Luncheon of the Boating Party, Whitfield Lovell: Kin, Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities, Made in the USA: American Masterworks from The Phillips Collection, and Van Gogh Repetitions. Liza has juried other local exhibitions, including two exhibitions at the Maryland Federation of Art in Annapolis and one at the Torpedo Art Gallery in Alexandria, VA. Liza received her bachelor's in Art History from George Washington University and a master's degree in Art History from American University, with a focus on modern and contemporary American art.
