River Arts is pleased to announce the juror for the next show, “Storm,” will be Maine artist and educator Jillian Herrigel. Artists may submit works for selection to the Damariscotta gallery before the deadline of April 1 at 4 pm. “Storm” will run until May 13.

Jillian Herrigel is a full time, professional painter with BA and master’s degrees in art history and fine art. She works in a wide array of mediums including watercolor, pen and ink, acrylic, oil and etching. Prior to moving to Maine 20 years ago, she was an art teacher in New Jersey. She has an active studio/gallery in Phippsburg. Her work is on permanent display at The Centre Street Gallery in Bath and on special exhibit at select galleries and shows throughout the year.

Open to members and non-members, all mediums are allowed including but not limited to painting, sculpture, fiber, photography, ceramics, original printing making, encaustic, pastel and collage. Artists are invited to interpret the theme in representational or abstract works. “Storm” can be broadly defined as wild weather. Also among the possibilities could be shelter in a storm or emotional expression, or artists are invited to present their own point of view.

Artists may enter one piece up to 48 inches in any direction (including frame) or two pieces up to 24 inches in any direction (including frame). Notification of accepted works will be published on River Arts website and Facebook by Wednesday, April 5.

There will be a public reception for “Storm” on Saturday, April 8 from 2 to 4 pm.
