"The 42nd annual Art of the State exhibit will provide a showcase for artists across the state and allow visitors of The State Museum to view the work of many talented artists," said Barbara Franco, executive director of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, which oversees The State Museum. "This is a wonderful opportunity for the established or emerging artist to exhibit their work and receive statewide recognition."

Artists can compete in five categories: painting, works on paper, photography, sculpture and craft. For the first time, submissions will be done by digital images.

Art of the State: Pennsylvania 2009 is co-sponsored by The State Museum of Pennsylvania and the Greater Harrisburg Arts Council.

Jurors, including the organization with which they are affiliated, include painter Patricia Bellan-Gillen of Burgettstown (Carnegie Mellon University), photographer David Graham of Philadelphia (The University of the Arts), sculptor H.
