We are thrilled to announce that Rachel Reese will jury this year's Selects exhibition. A former Senior Editor for Burnaway and the current Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art for the Telfair Museums in Savannah, Reese's work has been featured in BOMB Daily, Temporary Art Review and Art Papers, among others. She is currently organizing a retrospective with Savannah-based artist Suzanne Jackson that will open in summer 2019. We will begin taking submissions for Rachel Reese Selects on July 2, 2018.

Reminder: Bahouth's artist talk is this Saturday, April 21, at 11am.
