            Chelsea: Viridian Artists Inc. is pleased to present the second part of our 30th International Juried Exhibition curated by Vernita Nemec, Director of Viridian Artists. The exhibition opens November 12 and continues through December 7, 2019. In celebration, an opening reception will be held on Thursday, November 14, 6–8pm and a closing reception on Saturday, December 7, 4–6pm. We are especially pleased to present cash awards to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of this important competition that brings the art of emerging and under-recognized artists to wider attention.

As always, Viridian makes a concerted effort to expand the opportunities for outstanding artists’ work to be seen, exhibited and collected. For this season’s exhibition juried by the gallery’s director, instead of having a Director’s Choice segment the 30th Annual Juried Exhibition will have a Part 1 & Part 2.  Not only Viridian’s director, Nemec is also an independent curator and an artist long involved in the New York art world and its political activities.

This second half of the 30th Juried exhibit consists of art that directly or indirectly seemed to have political overtones – a fact of life today. More than ever, politics seem to be something we cannot avoid addressing. In today’s world, art has become a tool for clarifying daily life, both in its goodness and its badness.

Selection was especially difficult too because of the nature of art in our world today. Media, methods and conceptualizations of art encompass a wider range than ever. No more are we limited to the usual methods for now all is possible with the proper resources and if course, the courage to take a stand.

More than 400 artists submitted over 1000 submissions; a daunting task, but the 60 artists selected by Nemec in this two part exhibit, represent a wide survey of what concerns and inspires artists and as always, there is much to be concerned about. We look forward to sharing this fascinating exhibition of timely contemporary art by artists we are sure you will see more of in the future.


Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 12–6pm
