The Copley Society of Art is proud to present this year’s National Exhibition, “Exuberance Released,” open to all artists residing in the United States. Artists were invited to submit original works celebrating the exuberance of daily life in all its forms. These works range from realism to conceptual to abstract. The theme explores the coming together of positive moments in nature and the human spirit. Whether it be the warm sun breaking through the clouds or the unbridled enthusiasm of running through a summer shower, this exhibition aspires to reflect the exuberance found in every corner of life.

The selection and exhibition of work was curated by our Art Committee along with an outside juror. Awards were granted by the outside juror, Paula Bradstreet Richter, Curator at the Peabody Essex Museum. Since 2009, Richter has been responsible for curatorial research and support of the museum’s changing exhibition program, related publications and core activities within the curatorial department. She has participated on exhibition teams for more than a dozen recent and upcoming exhibitions and numerous gallery installations and rotations.
