DANVILLE, KY (20 Sep 2016) - Artists from Columbia and Burkesville have been selected for inclusion in the 2016 Horizon: Contemporary Landscape exhibit at the Community Arts Center in Danville, Kentucky.

Tim Smith, Columbia, KY, and Patricia Ritter of Burkesville, KY, are two of 37 artists whose work was accepted into the exhibit, which draws hundreds of entries from across the country each year.

The Arts Center's annual Horizon: Contemporary Landscape exhibit is now in its seventh year and Creative Director Brandon Long says it's hitting its stride. "This year, the show is trending very contemporary and I love that. My goal all along was to challenge both artists and the public to expand their definition of landscape art."

Horizon is an international juried exhibition. Artists from around the world submit pieces for consideration. Selection for the exhibit is made by a different invited juror each year. This year's juror was Isaac Powell, winner of the prestigious VSA Grand Prize Award from the Smithsonian Institution and Associate Professor at Eastern Kentucky University. "The amount and strength of submissions was impressive," says Powell. "My main objective was to select a cohesive show that also exhibits the variety of possibilities of what landscape artwork is today." He selected 40 pieces to display from the 230 artworks submitted for consideration. The show includes photography, paintings in oil and acrylic, charcoal drawing, sculpture, fiber art, installation art, wood carving, and - for the first time this year - a video submission.

Horizon: Contemporary Landscape will be on exhibit through November 11th.
