Juror’s Statement:

I found great joy in jurying this exhibition, because I started out as an artist before shifting into curatorial work. My BFA was specifically focused on painting, and it’s wonderful to spend time really looking at such varied and dynamic artworks. With so many interesting elements, compositions, and techniques, I have appreciation for many more works than I had awards to give.

I regularly work with artists who embrace many different materials, subject matters, and styles of making, so I am very receptive to the variety of works in this show. I have a love for abstraction, figurative, landscape, still life, etc., as well as sculpture, oil, acrylic, and watercolor painting. The style and material in and of themselves didn’t drive my choices, it was more about a combination between the command of medium and the spirit of the work. These things are hard to put into words, but I knew it when I saw it.
