}figure{ative Show 2021

March 5–14 at the Art Alliance Art Center
virtual opening reception, Friday, March 5, 6–8pm
Juror, Steven Sherrill

Formerly “The Go Figure” show, this show has a 2-decade history showcasing artworks of the human figure by Central Pennsylvania artists. Entry to the show is not juried.  All work must have the human figure as the dominant theme; clothed figures, nudes, and portraits are all invited. 

Juror — Steven Sherrill

Steven Sherrill is a Professor of English and Integrative Arts at Penn State University. He has five novels and a book of poems in the world. Though primarily a novelist, visual art has always been an important part of his creative output, and intake. In addition to making hundreds of paintings (and most of those figurative in some way), Steven has interviewed Kiki Smith and James Rosenquist for Modern Painters; he has written for TATE Magazine and Art Review; and he has taught art writing and art practice at the university. Somewhere along the way painting reared its oily and colorful head. Since then, he has endeavored to live an art-centered life.
