Juror's Comments:

Judging art is “simple”. There is only “do I like It?” that matters. The problem is, everyone’s opinion won’t jibe.  Therefore, eliminating personal preference, leaves just two things to consider. One is the media. How effectively did the artist handle the “stuff” the work is made of (pencil or paint …). There is also the subject matter. Sometimes it can be a concrete object like a tree or a person. Or it can be an inanimate concept such as “love”. Does the piece communicate well?
 
The pieces I have chosen display confidence and control of the media. Experience and effort are evident. Since there is no theme to this show, subject becomes irrelevant. But how the subject is displayed does matter. Something a little “different” is always more attractive. 
 
My congratulations to 
all of the entrants..
