No Big Heads is an annual self-portrait exhibition of limited size, open to all artists and all mediums. The piece chosen as Best of Show will receive a $1,000 award and the opportunity for a solo exhibition at our gallery next summer. Additional awards totaling $1,000 will also be presented.

This year’s juror for the exhibition is Beth Cavener Stichter. Stichter is currently a full-time professional studio artist working in the state of Washington.

She received her B.A. in sculpture from Haverford College and her M.F.A. from Ohio State University. She was awarded the Artist Trist Fellowship in 2009, the Jean Griffith Foundation Fellowship in 2006, the Virginia A. Groot Foundation Grant and an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Ohio Arts Council in 2005 and the American Craft Council’s Emerging Artist Fellowship in 2004. She has also been an artist-in-residence at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia and the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Mont.

She has exhibited nationally (including the Smithsonian Museum) and internationally and has taught numerous workshops across the country. She is currently represented by the Claire Oliver Gallery in New York.
