Currents 2016

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.

2016 Juror: Kitty Dudics, retired Professor of Art from Del Mar College, Corpus Christi, Texas.

After receiving her MFA in Art History from the University of Texas at San Antonio, Kitty taught college-level painting, drawing, and design for 34 years. She has had many group and solo shows throughout her career including her most recent shows at Corpus Christi Art Center, K-Space Contemporary in Corpus Christi, and Windway Gallery in Rockport.
