A Juried Show

Created during Peter Bruun's one year as Exhibitions Director at then Villa Julie College (now Stevenson University), an exhibition that at one and the same time is about and is a Juried Show.

A photograph by Bill Bartlett, one of three artists featured in A Juried Show. Obliged to honor submissions for a juried show from a "call for entries" issued the year prior to establishing a new exhibitions program, Bruun arrived at the novel idea of having a show about the juried show process: three jurors each chose one artist to feature, and also agreed to have one of their own pieces chosen for display by Bruun. The exhibition raised questions about objectivity and subjectivity in regard to the juried show process.
