AUBURN — Audrey Dowling of Westfield will have her mixed media piece, “Transitioning,” featured as part of the Schweinfurth Art Center’s “Made in NY” exhibition.

The exhibition opens June 12 with 73 pieces by 69 artists who represent 44 percent of the counties in New York state. This is the 25th year the art center has held the annual juried exhibit, and the 40th anniversary since the Schweinfurth opened its doors in 1981.

“The Schweinfurth has a long history of celebrating the artistic talents of people who live in New York State,” said Executive Director Donna Lamb. “This exhibit represents a wide variety of mediums, styles, and talent from all over the state.”

A total of 298 artists submitted work for the exhibit, which was judged by three artists: Sharon Loudon, an artist, educator and artistic director of Chautauqua Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution; George Afedzi-Hughes, an internationally known painter and performance artist who is originally from Ghana; and Hannah Frieser, a photographer and executive director for the Center for Photography at Woodstock.

The Schweinfurth Art Center is located at 205 Genesee St., Auburn. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission is $7 a person, free for members, participating artists and children 12 and under.
