Meet Our Awards Juror for the 17th Annual Master & Signature Show & National Juried Competition
Erin Coe, Chief Curator for the Hyde Collection in Glen Falls, NY will be the awards Juror for the AWA 17th Annual Member Show & National Juried Competition at the Addison Art Gallery in Orleans, MA this summer.
Coe is the driving force behind the acclaimed show, Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George co-curated with Barbara Buhler Lynes, a former curator of the Georgia O’Keefe Museum in Santa Fe. The O’Keefe show is currently at San Francisco’s DeYoung Museum through May 11.
With 20 years of museum experience, Erin has developed a sensibility as a curator and juror that she is looking forward to bringing to her work with AWA. While studying for her B.A. in Studio Art, Erin found that she was more drawn to the history and tradition of studying art, rather than making it herself. As a juror she looks for originality and freshness within those long-revered and beloved traditions. In speaking about her own criteria, Erin says, “I want something to carry a message and evoke a response – that expression that gets your attention at some level.”
