In keeping with their mission to identify and promote emerging talent as well as exhibit mid-career and established visual artists, the gallery sent out a regional call for entries to artists under 40 years of age. Ten artists were selected as finalists and their work will be exhibited in a show November 10th – December 22nd “10 UNDER 40 “. The artist’s work will include paintings, prints, drawings, ceramic sculpture, video installation and performance art. River Gallery has invited 10 individuals ( collectors, academics and art enthusiasts) to form an advisory committee who will judge the work of the 10 finalists and award cash prizes of $1000, $750 and $500. These prizes will be awarded during the opening reception. The artwork will be for sale and the River Gallery has committed to representing and promoting the 10 UNDER 40 finalists.
