The Members’ Egg Invitational features new works by nine Museum members in response to the current exhibition, Art 360: Contemporary Art Hatching Across Ohio on display in the McGregor Gallery until March 24.
Artists were selected for participation based upon the strength of work exhibited during the Museum’s 71st Annual Juried Members’ Exhibition, and were given no specifications for medium or style. Instead, they were asked to consider the place of the egg throughout history, and to consider the ovoid as a form.
The artists’ chosen mediums are diverse, including sculpture, printmaking, painting, and found object assemblage. If young viewers are feeling inspired after viewing the eggs, they’re invited to make their own nest in Chakeres’ interactive art lab!
