The Maude Kerns Art Center is honored to present the 21st annual Fast Forward: The Mayor’s Teen Art Show and New Acquisitions: Selected Works by Maude I. Kerns, opening on Friday, September 4 and on view through September 25. The Title Sponsor for the 2020 “Mayor’s Teen Art Show” is the Susi Larsen & Cameron Serbu Memorial Scholarship Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation. Mayor Lucy Vinis selects the Mayor’s Choice Award winner. The “Mayor’s Teen Art Show” jurors, artists and art educators Krista Raasch, Christopher St. John, and Barbara Counsil, choose additional award winners. All awards will be announced on Friday, September 11.

This year’s Fast Forward: The Mayor’s Teen Art Show features 28 teen artists from 11 schools. The selected artists display work in a wide variety of mediums, including watercolor, acrylic, and oil paintings, papier mâché sculptures, ceramics, glass, wood, and textile works, graphite, ink, and ebony pencil drawings, digital art, linoleum prints, mixed media, and photography.

The Maude Kerns Art Center and the City of Eugene are proud to announce Mayor Lucy Vinis’s selections for the “Mayor’s Choice Award” as well as other teen award winners among the 28 artists exhibiting in “Fast Forward: The Mayor’s Teen Art Show.”
Awards included cash, Oregon Art Supply gift certificates, and a complimentary membership to Maude Kerns Art Center.

The Mayor’s Choice Award, three-dimensional art:
Terpsichore, ceramics, by Brynn Gerl, age 18, South Eugene High School Mayor Vinis said of Gerl’s work, “Brynn has created an animated, organic sculpture of an inanimate object. This piece moves with music; I love the undulations of the contours and the colors of the glaze. It is intentionally and effectively irregular—in a way that is balanced and irresistible.”

The Mayor’s Choice Award, two-dimensional art:
Dancing Sea, acrylic painting, by Aden Nice, age 15, WheelHaus Arts Mayor Vinis said of Nice’s work, “I am struck by the balance and movement of this piece. Aden has succeeded in creating a dynamic abstract painting that fully evokes the power, strength and shifting light of water. I love the broad, muscular brush strokes!”

With New Acquisitions:
Selected Works by Maude I. Kerns

New Acquisitions: Selected Works by Maude I. Kerns is exhibited in the Maude I. Kerns Salon Gallery. It is partially sponsored by Marion Sweeney and dedicated to Leslie Brockelbank, the great niece of Maude Kerns. The exhibit features 18 pieces which have never been exhibited before. They are among a larger body of works on paper given to the Art Center by Leslie Brockelbank’s daughter, Mary Jane Griffiths, who sent her donation to the Art Center from her home in New Zealand. Largely non-objective, the work includes studies, prints, and paintings on paper.

The Maude Kerns Art Center is adhering to all State of Oregon and Oregon Health Authority guidelines. Both exhibits can be viewed in person and online at www.mkartcenter.org. Artwork may also be purchased through the Art Center’s website.
