D’Alessandro to jury next Collective Visions Gallery art show in Bremerton

Posted

One of the largest and most prestigious exhibitions of its type, the Collective Visions Gallery’s annual show is seeking submissions.

The show, now in its 14th year, will take place from Jan. 23 to Feb. 26.

All of the 2,400 square feet of exhibition space in the Bremerton gallery will be devoted to this event for the entire five-week duration of the show, officials said, which will follow state guidelines for the coronavirus in effect at the time.

The exhibition juror will be Michael D’Alessandro, executive director of Port Townsend’s Northwind Arts Center.

Prizes of more than $9,000 in cash and other awards will come from businesses and organizations in the community, officials said.

“The gallery is especially pleased that despite these challenging times, there is strong support for the arts in our community, including for this event,” said exhibition coordinator Alan Newberg.

“The CVG Show is known as one of the largest, and most prestigious and competitive, in the region.

Last year, artists from 98 cities across the state entered the show.

The deadline for applications is Sunday, Nov. 29, and the entry fee is $45 per artist. Aadditional information is available at www.cvgshow.com.

All Washington state artists over the age of 18 are invited to submit work in the “Photo/Digital,” “Two-Dimensional,” and “Three-Dimensional” categories.

The event attracts art lovers, buyers, educators and artists from Kitsap County and the wider Puget Sound region and beyond, officials said.

D’Alessandro, exhibition juror for the 2021 exhibition, had a 12-year career in architecture but left the profession to pursue a second career in the arts. A writer, publisher, teacher and curator, D’Alessandro has degrees in fine arts, design and art history.  He moved to Washington in 2014 from Portland, Oregon where he worked for arts nonprofits, the Froelick Gallery, and taught creative writing, graphic design and publishing at Marylhurst University.

He is the publisher and editor of Westering, a small press specializing in new literature and letterpress book editions, and lives in Port Townsend, with his partner and three children.
