Visiting Info


Among the most popular exhibitions at the Triton Museum of Art are its annual competitions, and judging by this year’s submissions they show no signs of waning. This year’s competition was bigger than ever, with more than 1,450 entries, making it no small task for our guest juror, Charlotte Eyerman, Executive Director of the Monterey Museum of Art. From the large number of exceptional works, she selected 124 works by 114 artists. Media includes painting, photography, drawing, printmaking, and mixed media, with a wide range of styles in each media. Media category place winners and best of show winner will be revealed at the reception.

Will you agree with the choices? Disagree? Please join us Friday April 22, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. for the reception and decide for yourself. You can even vote on your own “Best of Show People’s Choice” winner that night. The “People’s Choice” winner will also be recognized on our website and earn bragging rights worth their weight in gold (but no actual gold!). We hope to see you there!
