Thank you to our juror Susan Hostetler, who is a DC-based installation and mixed media artist. She had very difficult decisions to make since all of the proposals and work were so compelling. Three were chosen and Don Best has been invited to permanently install his artwork on the wood posts that will support the clothesline.
Below is a quote from the juror along with her selections for the three-week exhibitions from September to December 2019.
"I was honored to be given the task of selecting artists for The Clothesline Project. It is an exciting concept and I like the intent of reinforcing memories of past industries that built the local community. I read the proposals first and then cross-referenced those statements with the images. Since I could only choose three recipients, I opted to choose 3 proposals that are distinctly different from one another. While all the work was of very high quality, I chose project proposals that were reflected most clearly in the images."
Thank you to all the artists for participating in this new grant-funded project of the Western Foothills Land Trust. Lee Dassler, Executive Director of The Western Foothills Land Trust, and I are excited to begin working on this year’s exhibitions. In addition to the program this fall, Lee hopes to continue The Clothesline Project in the future.
Please mark your calendars for August 15th for a sneak peek of the installations.
