JURIED ART SHOW WILL COVER RANGE OF MEDIA.

Byline: Romy Jacobson Daily News Staff Writer

Abstracts, traditional landscapes, works with a social message - even a life-size mermaid made of plaster and a faux mummy named Seti I - will be among the artwork to go on display Saturday at the Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery.

Works by 85 amateur and professional artists are part of the 13th annual Juried All Media Art Exhibition, which will run through March 8.

``This is the show that started the museum,'' said curator Norma Gurba. ``It's one of our most popular exhibits.''

The show, co-hosted by the Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery and the Antelope Valley Allied Arts Association, was the inaugural show at the museum 13 years ago.

Professional juror Pete Algra, an artist, educator and a trustee-exhibition chairman for the Bakersfield Museum of Art, selected 141 pieces by 85 local artists out of 175 pieces entered by 103 artists for the 13th annual exhibit.

Algra also picked the winners of the $875 in cash awards donated by the LMAG Associates, the Allied Arts Cedar Community Arts Center, the Lancaster Photography Association, the Palmdale Visual Arts Program and private donors.

A public reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday. The winning artists will be announced at 6 p.m.

Free art demonstrations by three local artists will be presented at 3 p.m. Ronald Spees will discuss innovative photographic techniques in the Painterly Photography program, Myron Ropp will discuss color pencil usage, and JoGayle Gerner will present a Florals in Oil program.

``It's interesting to see after 13 years that we still have some of the same artists and a lot of new artists,'' said Gurba. ``It's nice to see such wonderful talent in our valley.''

The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, and is closed Mondays and holidays. Admission is free.

The museum is located at 44801 Sierra Highway. For more information, call (805) 723-6250 or 723-6251.
