Dear Artists & Art Appreciators,
I would like to formally invite you to the 39th Juried Regional Exhibition at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center in Wellsboro, PA. As the new director of the Gmeiner, this will be my first Juried show, and I am honored to be a part of what happens here every year. Many of you have entered many times over the years, and a few of you are only now learning about the Gmeiner. Whatever the case is, I hope we will enjoy yet another successful exhibit that will benefit all participants in some way. Best of luck to you all! Should you have any questions, please call or e-mail me, or check out our website.
