10th Annual ArtScape Juried Art Show

 

This year, we celebrated our tenth year of ArtScape! Our annual juried art show has changed quite a bit since our inaugural exhibit a decade ago. What began as an art show that took place in the boutique shops of historic downtown New Ulm has now been housed in the 4 Pillars Gallery since The Grand completed renovations on the second floor.

To mark the 10th Anniversary, we wanted to make this the biggest ArtScape ever, and I think it’s safe to say we exceeded the expectations we set. We had over 140 submissions this year, and were able to accept just over 70 pieces total between the student and adult categories.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our sponsors, we were able to increase both the number of prizes award and the prize amounts. A very special thank you to Gislason & Hunter, Steve Vranich & Tori Gronholz, Furth-Meile Insurance, Bailey Creek Boutique, Citizens Bank Minnesota, The Design Element, and The Grand Board & Staff for sponsoring this event!
