A little about the juror.  Jenny Harris has worked at The Museum of Modern Art in the Department of Painting and Sculpture since 2013, and has been a curatorial assistant since 2015. During this time, she has worked with Leah Dickerman on the exhibitions One-Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North (2015) and Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends (2017), for which she also organized the public program Dance Among Friends, featuring choreography by Rauschenberg’s collaborators, Trisha Brown, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor. Most recently, she assisted in the installation of the collection presentation, The Long Run (2017, organized by Paulina Pobocha and Cara Manes) and is currently working on the reinstallation of the collection for the reopening of the Museum in 2019. Prior to working at MoMA, she was the Liliane Pingoud Soriano Curatorial Fellow at the Musée du Louvre, Paris. She holds a BA from Wellesley College (2012)

I feel so blessed to have my painting “Brant Rock” chosen to be exhibited in the National Juried Art Show “Color” at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition. The juror for this exhibition is Marcela Guerrero, Assistant Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

“In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is—as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art. In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually. Color is “passive,” “deceptive,” and “unstable,” color behaves, color  is magic.”   – Joseph Albers, Interaction of Color
