The 66th Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition Features 76 Works by 62 Artists
The Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition (ROC-FLX), a long-running showcase for artists from western and central New York, returns to the Memorial Art Gallery for its 66th installment from June 16 through September 15, 2019. This year’s showcase, which will feature the work of 62 artists, has been juried by Marilyn Zapf, the assistant director and curator at the Center for Craft, a national arts nonprofit headquartered in Asheville, North Carolina.
Every two years, Rochester’s oldest and longest-running juried exhibition showcases the talents of emerging and established artists from a 27-county region. The artists are eligible for cash awards, among them the $1,500 Memorial Art Gallery Award, selected by the juror; the Alice Koret Award, presented by museum docents; and the Harris Popular Vote Award, selected by visitors during the first two weeks of the exhibition. This year, artists are eligible for nine cash prizes totaling more than $6,000. The first eight will be announced June 15 at the members’ opening party; the popular vote award will be announced June 25, 2019. View the list here. In addition, most of the artists have added to the inventory at THE STORE @ MAG as an exciting opportunity to make an investment in art.
