Artist Donald Sultan is the juror for this triennial exhibition showcasing the talents of artists from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

Donald Sultan is best known for his abstract still-lifes. He studied art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Art Institute of Chicago, and his work is included in the permanent collections of museums around the world, including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Tate Gallery in London.

Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the Katonah Museum of Art originates ten to twelve exhibitions annually, covering a broad range of art and humanities topics. As a non-collecting Museum, the KMA has the opportunity to develop an aspect of art historical concern from a focused and original point of view, and presents it within a fully developed educational context. Committed to making itself accessible and relevant to its community, the Museum offers lectures, symposia, films, workshops, concerts and other events for a general audience; and presents innovative and substantive programs for its member schools. The Children’s Learning Center, which is open to the public free of charge, is the only interactive space in the community where children can come on a daily basis to explore, interpret, and create art. The Katonah Museum of Art serves a primary population of 850,000, with an annual attendance of approximately 40,000 people.

The Katonah Museum of Art is supported in part by ArtsWestchester, with funds from the Westchester County Government, and by the New York State Council on the Arts. –
