All Florida Competition and Exhibition / by Ernesto Kunde

60th Annual All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition
June 29 - September 11, 2011

As the state’s oldest annual juried competition, over the years, the Museum’s All Florida has introduced the work of thousands of Florida artists working in all media – emerging, under recognized, and established younger and mid-career artists. The Exhibition reinforces the Museum’s commitment to Florida artists, provides professional exhibition opportunities for emerging artists, and reveals a provocative glimpse – through Florida artists’ eyes – of the state-of-the-art today through 101 paintings, sculpture, photography, video and installations.

The juror for the 60th Annual All Florida is Valerie Ann Leeds. Ms. Leeds is an independent scholar living in New Jersey. She serves as adjunct curator of American Art at the Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan, and prior to that held curatorial positions at the Orlando Museum of Art, the Tampa Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. She earned her M.A. at Syracuse University, and her Ph.D. in American Art at the City University of New York. Dr. Leeds is an expert on the work of Robert Henri, and has organized exhibitions, lectured and written on various topics in American Art.

The Museum once again utilized the electronic online web-service, CaFÉ, www.callforentry.org to accept all applications. This year over 1,800 artworks by 600 artists were submitted for consideration. The final exhibition entries total 101 works by the following artists:
