Moving Day, the Amherst Historical Society’s 4th Annual Juried Art Show

Oil painting of people emerging from trolley car in darkened subway station. Their progress is impeded by the people pressing to get in, too impatient and stupid to realize that the people have to get out first.

The Amherst Historical Society invites visitors to view Moving Day, its fourth annual juried art show, open now through December 11, 2016. This is the fourth annual art show hosted by the Amherst Historical Society and Museum. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Thursday, October 6th, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Strong House in conjunction with Amherst Arts Night Plus. The public is invited to attend both the reception and the art show.

We asked artists to present their own visual representation of what it means to move in, move out or move on. Gilles Giuntini, our juror, awarded first prize to Matthew Mattingly for the oil on canvas painting Let the People Out, second prize to Sally Dillon for the hand felted wool piece Amethyst Brook, and third prize to Ellen Kosmer for her mixed media collage What’s Left Behind.
