Selected Entries for 2012 American Pastoral

Thank you to all of the artists who submitted work to American Pastoral, A Landscape Show.  And, thank you for your patience in dealing with our temperamental online entry system as we continue to work on improving it.

Curator and Art Historian Arianne Kolb, formerly with the Getty Museum, CA, graciously offered her assistance in looking through roughly 240 images.  We acknowledge the difficulty that is inherent to viewing work other than photography in a digital format and we did our best to cull approximately 80 paintings, drawings, mixed media works and photographs for the exhibition.  Only work selected for this show appears in the list below.   If your work was not selected, please do not consider this to be a reflection on the validity of what you do.   Without a doubt, no two curators would select the same show.  Another curator of a different show will no doubt respond to your work and perhaps even award you a prize.

I respect what you do, and thank you for your contribution to the Carriage Barn Arts Center.  I hope you will consider entering more shows.

Betty Barker Gallery Director and Curator
