Beth Scher included in the 57th Chautauqua Annual Exhibition


Beth Scher’s work Girl Talk has been selected for inclusion into the 57th Chautauqua Annual Exhibition. Over 750 entries submitted and only 39 were chosen by the juror, renowned critic Jerry Saltz.

The Chautauqua Annual Exhibition is one of the oldest continuously running juried shows in the country. For our 57th year, approximately 25 works from contemporary painters, sculptors, photographers and ceramicists will be selected for this prestigious exhibition. Internationally renowned critic Jerry Saltz is the juror for the Chautauqua Annual this year. Since 2006 Saltz has been senior art critic and a columnist for New York magazine. Formerly the senior art critic for The Village Voice, Saltz has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Criticism three times. He and Roberta Smith, his wife of 30 years, have been described as a power couple who “shape the New York art conversation, providing competing and compelling points of view in the world’s art capital.”
