Six Sequim artists invited to Bremerton’s CVG show

Sequim artists Terri Biondolino, Suzanne Eller, Scott Erickson, Marilynn Evans, Mary Marsh and David C. Willis were recently chosen for inclusion in the 2018 CVG Show in Bremerton’s Collective Visions Gallery.

For the third year in a row, Marsh has been accepted into the CVG show. This year’s piece is a collage titled, “Ascending.”

Willis submitted three pieces to the jury for consideration last fall and one was chosen. The piece is a monochromatic gouache painting titled “Loren.” Working from a live model, the work was developed over several weeks in studio where Willis meets with a group of artists weekly to work on studies of the human figure.

The Sequim artists were selected by jurors Paula Stokes, Teresa Saia, and Harry Longstreet from nearly 300 artists and 900 works of art. Those selected are eligible for more than $10,000 in cash prizes going to 10 artists including “Best of Show Mayor’s Award” for $1,500.

The 2018 CVG Show — considered one of the largest and most prestigious art competitions in the Northwest — opens 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, at the Collective Visions Gallery, 331 Pacific Ave., in downtown Bremerton, continues through Feb. 24. The gallery at 331 Pacific Ave. is open 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesday–Saturday. For more information and a complete list of accepted artists, see www.CVGShow.com.
