Juror’s Statement

Thank you for inviting me in to jury your Artist’s Choice show. I have a passion for art and a great respect for those who make it so it is with that reverence that I approached the judging of this body of work.

I selected the winning pieces based on originality of the composition, also, the use of the chosen media, and professional presentation of the work.

Congratulations to all who participated. I honor you all.
