2014 National Road Festival

Juried Art Exhibition Award Recipients

The opening reception for the 2014 National Road Festival Juried Art Exhibition set a new record for attendance, with over two hundred attendees. The museum was packed for the awards ceremony officiated by Frank R. Melega and director Patrick Daugherty. Six awards were presented: two Jurors Awards, three Museum Awards and the Best of Show honor. Artworks in the exhibition include a wide range of styles from Abstract to Realism, plus many different media were represented. This great variety reflects the artworks in the permanent collection by Frank L. Melega.

The Museum Awards went to Rochel Schiffrin for her cut paper “Flying High”, “Terrance Hayes for his oil painting “Prince Lookalike” and Colleen Nelson for her acrylic painting “Are You Experienced?”.

The Jurors Awards went to Carol Randolph for her assemblage titled “Five Woods” and Daniel Salitrik for his photograph “Chincoteaque 2013” .

The Peoples Choice Award was announced at the Closing Reception. Receiving the most votes, by a large margin,  was the oil painting by Diane Kiproff titled “Wednesday Girl”. A drawing was held for the artists in the show that attended the Closing Reception for the exhibitions banner. The winner is Leslie Robbins.

There are many types of art and many types of artists. It is very rare for one artist to have the talent and ability to be a master of such a wide range of styles and media as Jon C. Crawford (1952-2012). 

The Frank L. Melega Art Museum is proud to be the location for first solo exhibit of Mr. Crawford’s impressive art. The curator for this exhibition is art collector and connoisseur Patrick A. Wick. “Jon Crawford was the only Renaissance man I’ve ever met,” said Wick. Having collected Crawford’s artworks for decades, Mr. Wick is very familiar with Crawford’s unique talents. “One of the most extraordinary things about Jon’s work is that every time you look at one of his paintings, you see something in it that you didn’t see before.  So you might want to tour the exhibit 2 or 3 times.  That’s why his artwork is truly scintillating – hence the name of the exhibit.” Wick explained. 

Crawford’s range of painting styles included Classical Realism, Surrealism, Abstract, Geometric Abstract, Impressionism, Cubism, Folk Art and Primitive Art, all of which are represented in the Melega Art Museum show. Mr. Crawford’s original artworks and limited editions will be available for purchase.
