Call for Katonah Museum Artists' Association member entries:


“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.”

The chorus from Leonard Cohen’s Anthem is the catalyst for this juried exhibition. Show us work that is inspired by discovery through imperfection, by light, by near darkness, by enlightenment, by revelation, by epiphany or your singular expression of Cohen’s ideas.

 This KMAA exhibit is from May 21 to June 17, 2017, at the
 Fine Arts Gallery of Westchester Community College, Valhalla, New York

Juror: Sarah Bachelier, Director of Education at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, New York. A native of the Hudson Valley, Bachelier has an MA in Curatorial Studies from Bard College and a BA in Liberal Arts from Sarah Lawrence College.  Since receiving her MA, Sarah has worked with the Storm King Art Center, the Hessel Museum at Bard College and abroad at the Centre Pompidou and Louvre in Paris.  She was lead Educator at the Dia Art Foundation introducing innovative programs to Beacon schools and the greater Hudson Valley region.  As someone with both curatorial and art education background, Sarah takes a keen interest in the interfacing that takes place between art and audience and the ability that art has to open both young and old to the richness of diversity.
