Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

The Americas Juried Competitions originated in 1970 as the National Print and Drawing Show at Minot State University. It was retitled Works on Paper in 1986 and when opened to international entries in 1993, it became Americas 2000. In 1995, the all media category was added. Forty-nine years after the original call for entries, Americas 2000 is attracting world-wide contemporary art with two alternating annual exhibitions, All Media and Paperworks.

What Makes this event different?

Best of Show receives an invitation for a solo exhibition in the Northwest Arts Center's Walter Piehl Gallery at Minot State University. Purchase awards are determined by Art Faculty for inclusion in the Permanent Art Collection at Minot State University.

Jeppson and her artist-husband Deane Colin Fay operate an exhibition design business, Starview Enterprises, Inc. They’ve designed exhibits for museums, galleries and organizations that include interpretive materials and interactive displays. As gallery manager for the The Arts Center in Jamestown, ND and former curator at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo, ND, Jeppson has served on numerous grant panels and has juried student, community and academic exhibitions.
