EXHIBIT ON VIEW JULY 13 – AUGUST 1, 2024: Archway Gallery presents its “16th Annual Juried Exhibition” with works selected by Lydia Bodnar-Balahutrak. This annual event is an opportunity for area artists and non-members of the gallery to participate in an exhibition of works in Houston’s finest artist-owned space. Area artists are invited to apply. Each year an invited juror selects works by local artists for the month-long exhibition. Sales from the exhibition support a nonprofit organization chosen by the gallery members. Artists may enter one or two works for the entry fee of $30. Prizes are awarded at the discretion of the juror and include cash awards for first, second, and third place winners. The first-place winner will also receive a month’s guest artist privileges at Archway Gallery.

Bodnar-Balahutrak completed undergraduate art studies at Kent State University, studied at the Corcoran School of Art and received her Master of Fine Arts degree in painting from George Washington University, Washington, D.C. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, she moved to Houston in 1977, where she continues to live and work. An IREX grant enabled her to travel to Ukraine, her ancestral homeland, for the first time in 1991. Five years later, she visited the Chernobyl Zone. These trips marked turning points in her creative work and world view. Her current work continues to explore narrative and cultural metaphor by combining collage, text, and figuration.
