Current Exhibition ~ International Guild of Realism 17th Annual Juried Exhibition

At Sugarman-Peterson Gallery in Santa Fe, NM  |  June 2nd - June 26th, 2023

The International Guild of Realism will be returning to the Sugarman-Peterson Gallery in beautiful Santa Fe, NM, to host our 17th Annual Juried Exhibition, which will be held from June 2nd through June 26th, 2023

We had a very successful 13th Annual Exhibition in 2018 at the prestigious Sugarman-Peterson Gallery so we are very excited to have them host our yearly gallery exhibition in 2023. The Sugarman-Peterson Gallery is in the heart of the Santa Fe Art District, a Top 3 Art Market! The gallery is centrally located among many quality art galleries, luxury shops and fine dining, attracting plenty of affluent visitors during the peak summer season. We couldn’t have asked for a better time or location. Santa Fe is a major US art market (Top 3) and has well over 150 art galleries so definitely plan on entering our upcoming 17th Annual IGOR Exhibition!

Art Events
Since we have had amazing success with our art events in past IGOR exhibitions, we will again be offering several days of interesting art activities for attending IGOR members in beautiful Santa Fe, a Top 3 Art Market! We are planning to have an art seminar with noted guest speakers, a gallery tour of the best realism galleries in Santa Fe, a private dinner at a Santa Fe restaurant and much more. The public opening will be on Friday, June 2nd, 2023 from 5:00 to 7:30pm. We will put forth maximum effort to make this our biggest and best exhibition to date. We are asking you and other members of IGOR to send in your very best and most creative masterworks. The entry deadline is March 10th and there will be no extension! This exhibition will be a major selling event which will be heavily marketed in many national art publications. We encourage all of our IGOR members to start painting their masterworks and have them finished before the deadline. Every IGOR member is invited to participate in our Santa Fe art events whether juried in the show or not. This will be a time to learn, make friends, connect, create moments for social media and other publicity, win awards and last but not least to sell your beautiful artworks. Let's be a strong team and make this a weekend worth remembering. Mark your calendar and pick up the brushes! Happy painting/drawing!

Selected Artists
The International Guild of Realism has recently completed the final jury results for our upcoming 17th Annual Juried Exhibition hosted by the Sugarman-Peterson Gallery this June. We had a huge number of paintings entered, and without a doubt, the quality was excellent!

The jury for this year's exhibition was handled in two levels with IGOR Charter Members handling the first level and then the owners and gallery director of the Sugarman-Peterson Gallery completed the final jury. Once again, we received an amazing array of superb entries, and our jurors were quite impressed with the quality and creativity of the work entered. Thank you, IGOR artists for submitting such wonderful artwork.

Congratulations to this year's selected artists!

IGOR Awards
As customary during our annual juried exhibitions, we ask the gallery to appoint a guest judge(s) to award ribbons in different categories to selected Guild Members for their outstanding artwork. All award winners will receive their ribbons by mail after the conclusion of the exhibition.

The Opening Reception
Sugarman-Peterson Gallery welcomes all IGOR Artists and their guests to attend the opening reception on the evening of Friday, June 2nd, 2023. We will also be having multiple seminars on current topics plus other art get-togethers for attendees. There are excellent hotels and resorts in the Santa Fe area. As usual, we will send out a Travel Guide by email a few months before the opening reception. We will truly have a fun filled two or three days of numerous art related activities so we encourage as many IGOR members as possible to attend these events this June in beautiful Santa Fe whether you have been juried in the show or not.
