Halpert Biennial ’07: A National Juried Visual Art Competition and Exhibition

Jul 6, 2007 - Oct 6, 2007

The Halpert Biennial ’07 is a national, juried two-dimensional art competition and exhibition program designed to recognize new works by emerging and established artists residing in the United States. It has grown wonderfully over the years and features some of the most exciting new visual art being produced in the country. All visual artists currently residing in the United States, at least 18 years of age, and working in two-dimensional media are eligible to enter the Halpert Biennial ’07. Any original, two-dimensional works of art including paintings, drawings, prints, photography, mixed media, and works using traditional and non-traditional materials are considered for the juroring process. Recent exhibitions have included more computer-generated art and images but the Halpert’s strength is in the featured artists’ reliance on traditional techniques and mediums used in innovative ways. The awards for the competition amount to $5,000: Two Juror’s Awards in the amounts of $1,500 and $1,000, a Director’s Award in the amount of $1,500, and purchase awards to total $1,000.

The Halpert Biennial is a visual art component of An Appalachian Summer Festival.
