CAA is calling all artists

(Continued)

While studying for her Ph.D. at NYU, she directed an art gallery in the East Village. Later, influenced by film students, Hurwitz recognized that documentary film was an appealing story-telling medium, according to a media release from CAA, and she began researching an old family story that became the basis of “Lillie & Leander: A Legacy of Violence,” which premiered at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. Hurwitz is now back to painting.

The National Juried Exhibition accepts original work in all fine art mediums; no commercial reproductions or crafts will be accepted. To enter this show, artists must send slides or CDs of their work. The deadline is May 15. Up to $3,500 in prizes will be awarded. The show will run July 12 through Aug. 16 with a preview party from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 12. Awards will be presented at 6 p.m.

This year’s juror is John Magnan. Magnan is a second-career artist living and working in the Waterfront Historic District of New Bedford, Mass. He creates wood sculptures, mixed-media corporate and private installations, solo exhibitions, and performances. A lifelong woodworker, he began his artistic career in 1995 and earned his Master in Fine Arts degree in sculpture from UMass, Dartmouth. Previously, Magnan completed a 28-year career with the National Security Agency in Maryland. In addition to his MFA, Magnan holds a master’s degree in national security strategy from The National War College in Washington and a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Niagara University. His artwork has twice been featured on CBS News Sunday Morning.
