Juror's Comments:

Despite this being a small show, I was impressed by the variety of styles and range of interpretations of the theme “America.” From vast landscapes to details of the everyday, the works of art showcase the artists’ idea of America. I included works that express not only technical skill but also aesthetic value and creativity. I was particularly struck by some of the unique approaches to the materials used. Awards were presented to works I found myself returning to, those that showcase an attention to material, image and theme. Thank you for this opportunity.
