2016 National Juried Exhibition


The Batesville Area Arts Council's Gallery on Main hosted the 2016 BAAC National Juried Exhibition from April 26 through June 11, 2016. The exhibition consisted of 28 pieces from 19 artists across the United States. 


The juror for BAAC’s 4th Annual National Juried Exhibition, Joe Ford, is an artist and professor of digital design at Arkansas State University. An Arkansas native, Ford is a graduate of the MFA Studio program at the University of Illinois. Ford is also a recipient of the 2015 Artist Fellowship Award for Sculpture/Installation Art from the Arkansas Arts Council. His current work is a third-person, passive and slightly bemused look at the near future, surveillance and our complicated relationship with technology. The materials and techniques that he uses and the aesthetic choices he makes oscillate between those of traditional home-building and housekeeping and the stuff of 21st century digital culture.
