July 7 – 25, 2020

Juror: MARTICA SAWIN, Art Historian, Critic

     The work has been selected


Blue Mountain Gallery, located in the heart of New York City’s Chelsea District, invites emerging, mid-career and established artists to submit work for its 9th Juried Exhibition. Critic and art historian Martica Sawin will be the juror for its 2020 Summer Juried Exhibition.

We held out hope that the selected work would be exhibited at our 25th Street location, but are now joining other galleries and museums in the move to widely shared online exhibitions during the time of the limitations due to the pandemic. Communal engagement with art is crucial in these challenging times and we hope that the online exhibition will contribute the sharing of creativity and accomplishment.

We are excited to announce that this year’s exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated online catalogue with an essay written by our juror, Martica Sawin, a prestigious American art critic and art historian.  The exhibit will be displayed in a virtual gallery space, on the BMG website, on the BMG Facebook page, and BMG ARTSY page. The gallery will publicize the show as usual through social media and sending out emails to viewers, collectors and critics.  All paintings will still be offered for sale. The show will be featured during the scheduled time of July 7-25, and will remain part of the archive of exhibitions on our website.

Art historian and critic Martica Sawin has spent more than a half century covering contemporary art in print and in the classroom. As an historian she has focused especially on Surrealism; her book, Surrealism in Exile and the Beginning of the New York School has become a classic and was the basis for major museum exhibitions she curated in Europe.  Sawin is the author of books on Nell Blaine, Wolf Kahn, Yves Tanguy, Gordon Onslow Ford, and Stephen Pace, among others, as well as many essays for museum and gallery exhibition catalogs.  From 1970 to 1995 she chaired the art history department at Parsons School of Design and was the founding director of Parsons in Paris.
