Excerpts from the Juror’s Statement
The subject matter of the animal kingdom is very broad indeed and so were the entries. While I was aware that it was an all media show, I was impressed to see such a variety of media represented by the entries. There was scratchboard, fiber, drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and even pyrography. This makes a comprehensive and interesting show for the viewing public when seen as one body of work in the gallery.
I narrowed my selections down to my top 7 and then reviewed them further for placement as first, second, third and honorable mention. I always have a hard time “rejecting” art because I know each and every piece represents an individual’s energy, commitment, expression and a little of their soul.
Seeing the varied creative art endeavors represented here gives one encouragement that the interest, exploration, self education, conviction and tenacity needed to pursue art are alive and well.
