This prominent showcase highlights the exceptional work of emerging artists throughout the country in a variety of media. Juror Judith McElhone states of the exhibition, "the pieces selected for Nor'Easter: The 46th Annual Juried Members Exhibition not only speak to the incredible talent of the NBMAA members, but also to the diversity of expressions, concepts, materials, and subjects that define contemporary visual art." Accepted works will be on view in the Museum's new 3,000 sq. ft. Stitzer Family Gallery in its newly opened 17,346 sq. ft. addition.
