The judges who selected the 41st Elkhart Juried Regional exhibition were Denise Lisiecki, director, Kirk Newman Art School, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts and Ginger Owen-Murakami, Professor of Photography & Intermedia, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo.
This exhibit marks forty-one years of providing artists in northern Indiana and southern Michigan an opportunity to show their work and compete for cash awards.

This exhibition, like those in the past, provides an exciting survey of the most current art being produced throughout the Michiana region.
