WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) -
The premiere Museum in the tri-county area is still open safely, for in person visitors.
For this year’s exhibition, juror Mary Ann Varley of Ottawa, ON selected 46 works to be in the exhibition, including drawings, paintings, photographs, and mixed media works. In her comments, Varley noted that there were several artworks “of outstanding quality, demonstrating exquisite skill and technical merit, especially in painting. These works show maturity of the artist who considers all of the elements of a really fine artwork. Fresh bright watercolour strokes or fine rendering in oil reveal this mastery of technique and expression.” She added: “I was happy to see a work or two which immediately brought a smile. We need this especially this year.”
Many of the works on display will be for sale. One third of the proceeds benefit the Frederic Remington Art Museum, and two thirds go to the artist. To purchase artwork from the exhibit visit our Museum Shop.
The artists in the exhibition are: Martin Arquitt, Ogdensburg; Peter Basta, Carthage; Sharon H.J. Cheng, Potsdam; Kasarian Dane, Madrid; Betty Graham, Massena; Barre Hall, Ogdensburg; Sharon Hughto, Dexter; Drayton Jones, Fayetteville; Kathy Kelly, Morristown; Richard Koch, Edwards; Gary Larsen, Edinburg; Ronald Larsen, Canton; Brenda Maxson, Gouverneur; Maelea Mercado, Canton; Eleanor Morgan, Potsdam; John Morrow, Ogdensburg; Allen Murray, Potsdam; Beverly J. Patchin, Lisbon; Paul N. Pedersen, Hermon; Hahlil Rayme, Norfolk; Thomas Robarge, Ogdensburg; Linda Toomey, Amherst; Catherine LaPointe Vollmer, Potsdam; and Kenneth N. Wiley, Saranac Lake.
The next opportunity for artists to enter a juried exhibit at the Museum is in the spring, for the 2021 Members’ Juried Art Exhibit. That exhibit is open to any member of the Museum; an artist who is not yet a Museum member may join when they enter their submissions.

Safety measures are in place to keep employees and guests safe:
- A route through the galleries has been created to make your experience as enjoyable as possible and avoid crowding in smaller spaces. Following the route, which is marked by easy-to-follow signage throughout the Museum, encourages social distancing and ensures you have time to enjoy all the spaces and exhibitions throughout the building.
- Group tours will not be offered until further notice. If a large group visits the Museum, we may ask you to separate into smaller groups to encourage social distancing and make it easier to navigate other visitors in the Museum.
- Elevator access is available. Please use the elevator with your immediate party only.
The Frederic Remington art exhibitions in the Albert and Addie Newell Galleries will be on view. The Richard E. Winter Gallery will be closed until the opening of the New York State Juried Art Exhibit, which is expected to take place on September 19, 2020. View the 2020 Members' Juried Art Exhibit in a digital format.
Work is expected to be ongoing in the former Remington Estate rooms on the 2nd floor, in preparation for the Sally James Farnham permanent exhibit, generously funded by The Robert F. and Eleonora W. McCabe Foundation. Pleased stay tuned for updates on this exciting new exhibition.
