Aftermath will be an all media exhibition that features artwork based on the after effects of natural or manmade disasters.

The works featured in this exhibition are sure to strike the innermost chords of all involved. This exhibition will be open to all artists, nationally and internationally, working in all media. Juror: Laurel Reuter. Founding Director and Curator of the North Dakota Museum of Art, Ms. Reuter, among her many accomplishments, is known for developing exhibitions and collections that surround artists’ interpretations of traumatic events. She received the 1999 Award of Distinction from the National Council of Art Administrators. She was commended for “helping a devastated community draw together and recover its spiritual existence,” during the great flood that ravished Grand Forks, North Dakota. It was also through her vision that she was able to portray through artists’ work just how powerful and effective art can be in the healing process.
