PORTMOUTH - “Unforgotten” is the theme of the 19th annual Joan L. Dunfey open juried exhibition to be on view during the month of November at the New Hampshire Art Association's Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery.
Sixty-three artworks in all media were chosen from 137 entries for this prestigious NHAA show by juror Austen Barron Bailly. NHAA members and non-members were invited to compete in the jurying process. Bailly is the George Putnam Curator of American Art at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
Dunfey, a seacoast resident died in 1998. She was a steadfast patron of the arts, and her estate provided funding for the Joan L. Dunfey Fund for the Arts through the New Hampshire Charitable Fund that supports this annual exhibit. Winners will receive $800 for first place; $500 for second; and $300 for third place.
