Currents & Miniatures

The annual all-member exhibition highlights our family of artists and provides a chance to stand out as a Merit Artist the following year. An invited juror will chose five Merit Artists, and a sixth is selected by popular vote.

2013 Juror: Dianna Bluntzer, Director of the Art Center of Corpus Christi.

After receiving her bachelor's degree in Art History from the University of Texas at Austin, Dianna Bluntzer went on to work for Sotheby's in New York City, as well as operating her own graphic design and marketing company prior to being named the Director of the Art Center of Corpus Christi.

Congratulations 2014 Merit Artists!

Jorge Alegria, Doris Cole, Les McDonald, Lotus McElfish, Lois Morton, and the people's choice: John Martell!
