The Biggs Museum of American Art is now accepting applications for its juried Biggs Picture Regional Landscape Competition.

This exhibition will present art works from all media; such as, painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, craft, and video; of competition winners that most successfully interpret the theme of “Landscape”.

“Our Biggs Picture exhibition, which happens every three years, features some of the best artistic talent in the region,” said Charles Guerin, Biggs Museum Executive Director. “We encourage artists across all mediums to enter their best work for an opportunity to exhibit work in this fun, diverse exhibition at the Biggs Museum.”

Depending on size, the exhibition will display between 40 and 60 works. Each work must fit within at least one of these sub-themes:

Perceived Landscape: interpretations of actual spaces at particular times.
Imagined Landscapes: interpretations of spaces from the past, memory, make-believe, and/or the future.
Landscapes of the Mind: interpreting psychological states of being through creations of space.

This exhibition will be supported by a number of educational programs including, but not limited to: curator led tours of the Biggs Museum’s landscape paintings, juror talks, workshops in the Museum’s galleries, and Biggs Kids programming.

Jason Rosenfeld, Ph. D, Chair and Professor of Art History at Marymount Manhattan College and Co-Curator of “River Crossings” at the historic homes of landscapists Thomas Cole and Frederic Edwin Church.
