The International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA) 28th Juried Experimental Art Exhibit is on display at LowellArts. The exhibition features 90 pieces of art in all-media, both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional, by artists from around the world 18 years old or older.

Monetary awards for the exhibition exceed $10,000 and include the Best of Show, or the “Gracie” Award, in honor co-founder Gracie Hegeman. Material awards were presented for works considered “Cutting Edge.” The juror for the exhibition was Joseph Becherer, the recently appointed director of the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame and formerly the founding director and curator of the sculpture program at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

About the International Society of Experimental Art (ISEA)


ISEA was formed in 1991 to give all mediums a venue to have work shown in an annual juried exhibition within the United States or abroad.  Our society of experimental artists, explore, learn, and apply new techniques, new composition approaches, or new concepts to create. We are about having an attitude of experimentation, looking at the “what ifs” in our art. We try and we try again. Our art can be realistic or abstract, it is our approach to making the art and the aesthetic results that count.

This exhibition coincides with the ISEA's Educational Symposium held in Grand Rapids September 15-20. More information about ISEA and details about the symposium can be found at
