Juror’s Statement

My criteria for judging an exhibition is probably a little different.  When I see a painting that pulls me in, whether because of design, graphics, color, content, or a unique approach, I say to myself, “I wish I had painted that!”

In this exhibition, I had quite a few “I wish I had painted that!” moments.

 Congratulations to all who entered, and to those who received awards.  I thank the organizers for allowing me the honor of judging this outstanding exhibition.
