The Quincy Art Center is proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Mary S. Oakley & Lee Lindsay Artist Showcase. Submission for this Artist Showcase was open to artists 18 years of age and older living within a 50-mile radius of Quincy. A total of 102 works of art were selected from those submitted for the Artist Showcase.  A professional from outside the eligible region with expertise in the visual arts was selected to choose the work for exhibition and awards. The staff and board of the Art Center are never involved in the selection process. The juror for the 2021 Mary S. Oakley & Lee Lindsay Artist Showcase is Len Davis. Davis is a California-based artist who has exhibited, lectured, and led workshops nationwide. Much of his artwork has been featured in television, such as “Parks & Recs,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Two & A Half Men,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “Six Feet Under” & and a Showtime original “The Affair”.
