The Arts & Culture Alliance is presenting its National Juried Exhibition of 2010, a new exhibition featuring selected works from 35 artists in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, and Ohio. The National Juried Exhibition was developed in 2006 to provide a forum for local artists to compete on a national scale and display their highest quality work. The exhibition features both traditional and non-traditional work and will be displayed at the Arts & Culture Alliance's Emporium Center Gallery from December 13, 2010 - January 26, 2011. A public reception will take place on Friday, January 7, from 5:00-9:00 PM with a brief awards ceremony at 6:00 PM in which $1,000 in cash awards will be announced.

The juror, Susan Shockley, received her BFA in painting from the Memphis College of Art in 1981 and an MFA in painting from Cornell University in 1983. Since 1994 she has worked at the Parthenon Museum in Nashville. During that time she has curated over eighty shows with budgets up to $250,000. "The work submitted attests to the high quality of art being produced in this area," says Shockley, who viewed over 200 works submitted for the show. "I was especially impressed by the wide array of mediums used."
