Roddy Competition

September 11—September 28, 2002

The Frances N. Roddy Open Competition is an annual competition, now in its third year, and is one of the art association’s most exciting and competitive shows. The competition is named for a long-standing friend and artist member of the art association, Franny Roddy, whose family and friends endowed a $1000 prize to be given annually in Franny’s name to the best entry in this all media show. The competition gains in popularity year by year, due to the renown of the jurors selecting entries for exhibition and other prizes which bring the prize total to $2500.

We are pleased to announce that for the 2002 competition, the juror was Howard Yezerski, who has played an important role in cultivating the talents of artists at his gallery on 14 Newbury Street in Boston.
