2020
an online juried exhibition

The Indiana Artist Network is pleased to announce their first online juried exhibition titled, 2020. What does 2020 mean to you? We invited artists of all backgrounds to submit work that responded to this question. We had numerous applications and very great work for our jurors to choose from. Congratulations to all, as it was a challenging jury process. This exhibition will run from Friday, August 14th to Friday, September 18th, 2020. We are incredibly proud to be in the company of so many talented artists in Indiana, and we hope you are too.

First place

Jordan Outlaw, Existential Waves, digital painting, 9" x 12"

"This piece titled “Existential Waves” was painted using a graphics tablet and photoshop. It depicts a woman with a flushed teary face holding a dead bird. She looks toward the viewer, her eyes asking for help. The woman is drowning in a sea of feathers with large waves reaching the sky. This piece is representative of 2020 as it depicts the feelings of loss and uncertainty, feelings that so many have experienced this year."

 

Second place 

Matthew Huntley, Found, oil on canvas, 13.5" x 24"

"My work explores a world where the traditional roles of protector and protected have been turned on their heads. Colossal women protect both men and humanity as a whole from rampaging monsters. In Found specifically, the aftermath of a great battle is explored not through a masculine lens, but a feminine one, where the focus is on caring for survivors and literally picking up the pieces of what once was. 2020 has seen the widespread collapse and tearing down of the status quo, from institutionalized racism to the very ways people socialize and work. My painting Found serves as an apocalyptic yet hopeful allegory for our current global condition."

 

Third place​

Jeanette Hammerstein, Frontlines sketch, oil on panel, 12" x 18"

"Art for me is a means to process the sometimes difficult places I find myself in as an emergency physician.  I painted this quick selfie sketch to document for myself this moment in time.  And that moment is surrounded (thankfully) by tireless, hard-working humans who continue to show up and do the job. I could not be more grateful for the continued effort of the nurses, medics, and other persons that make my job doable.  The person behind me has to be one of the most big-hearted nurses I have ever met."
