-La Jolla, California

Enjoy a free evening of art at the 23rd Annual Juried Exhibition opening night reception, located at The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, in La Jolla, California, Friday, August 1, 2014, from 6:30p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

This event features artist and Jury Award pick, Annette Cyr, and her Woman in Predicaments IV art series, along with additional artists which will be on display during the month of August. The exhibit includes 43 pieces selected from more than 1,100 images submitted by 220 artists.

The Woman in Predicaments IV paintings depict women in various phases of adulthood. “Each Woman in Predicament is heroic as she confronts the void, at times appearing insignificant in contrast to the whole, and yet nevertheless, persisting with resolve and determination,” Cyr says.

Cyr is also an associate professor and the lead faculty of art at National University. She earned her MFA in Painting from Yale University and currently divides her time between New York City and San Diego, CA.

Jurors Sally Yard, a professor of art history, and Derrick Cartwright, director of university galleries and professor of art history, both of the University of San Diego, will announce the final jury award winners at Friday’s reception.
