Opportunity: 2nd Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition

Aritistic Discipline: Visual

In the summer of 2024, the Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University presents the 2nd Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition, organized by the staff of the museum.

This juried display, originally intended to occur at Gonzaga University every third summer but postponed by the pandemic, seeks to present the diversity and dynamism of contemporary artistic activity in the Inland Northwest while celebrating the relationship between art and the local landscape.

The 2nd Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition is presented at the Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Expo ’74, and in celebration of the legacy of creativity, community, and environmental stewardship that drives Spokane to this day. In 1974, Spokane became the smallest city in history to host the World’s Fair. As an environmentally focused event, the Spokane World’s Fair sparked a transformation in the heart of our city that became the catalyst for sustainable growth in our region. This exhibition is one of the many events during the 50th anniversary of Expo ’74, celebrated May 4 to July 4, 2024.

Selection of works and award winners for the 2nd Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition will again be made by the staff of the Jundt Art Museum. Works will be chosen for the show based upon the museum staff’s understanding of artistic quality and merit; the work’s adherence to the landscape theme and issues, and the themes of creativity, community, and environmental stewardship as part of the anniversary of Expo ’74; the educational and professional achievements of the artist; and the observance of the rules and guidelines of the application process.

The first Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition was held at the Jundt Art Museum from May 26 to August 11, 2018, and attracted almost 4,000 visitors to campus during the summer months. The award winners for the 2018 show included 1st place winner Amalia Fisch (Spokane, Washington) for her oil on canvas painting Kettle River Patchwork, and 2nd place winner Scott Bailey (East Wenatchee, Washington) for his painting 46˚ 51’ 06” N 121˚ 45’ 28” W (Delaunay Triangulation). Honorable mention awards were given to Owen McAuley (Cheney, Washington), Dennis Smith (Medical Lake, Washington), and Gregg Schlanger (Ellensburg, Washington).
