Juror's General Comments on the Show and Award winners

"It was a great honor to be the juror for this exhibit.  Virtually all the artists in this year’s competition deserve credit for the energy, invention and remarkable range of thought that is reflected in their creative work and titles as it relates to this years theme of Space-Time Reflections.  In the selection of winners I took note of works that showed originality, craftsmanship, experimentation and expressiveness.  I especially took note of the artist’s message or intention as it related to this year’s theme.  I looked for how the artwork affected my experience of physical space as well as where it took me emotionally.  Overall, I was greatly impressed with the quality of all the works!  Congratulations Artists!"
