Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce a call for entries for the 9th Alexander Rutsch Award and Exhibition for Painting. This juried competition is open to U.S.-based artists aged 19 and older. A $5,000 cash prize and a solo exhibition at Pelham Art Center are awarded to the winner.  Pelham Art Center is proud to sponsor the competition and award to honor the memory and artistic achievement of Alexander Rutsch (1916 – 1997), an artist who actively supported Pelham Art Center for more than 25 years. After his death, friends, family and supporters of Alexander Rutsch established a generous fund to support a biennial, open, juried competition in painting.  The last Rutsch Award recipient was Texas-based artist Lindy Chambers.

The Alexander Rutsch Award and Exhibition program continues Rutsch’s belief that art transcends all of our humanity. Rutsch saw art as “the stone in the water sending ripples throughout the universe.” His extraordinary work, rich in the celebration of life and our shared human experiences, is included in many of public and private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.
