Juror Statement

Gale Johansen: 2D & 3D Art

It is my honor to be a juror for this year's festival - woodcuts, quilling, stone or metal sculptures, collage, traditional or abstract paintings, or just the creative imaginings of the artist are all presented.  Some selections convey an atmosphere or documentation of a time and place, while others spark deeper thought and interpretation by the viewer.  

 

Art can elicit a serene and peaceful response, communicate a message, or excite and spark further dialogue.  A strong composition, proficient technique, or unexpected viewpoint or idea deserve special consideration.  My congratulations to all the artists and best wishes for continued success and growth.

 

Juror Statement

Norman E. Riley: Photography

Because there was no theme prescribed for submissions to this year's show, all of the entries in photography were judged on equal footing and all are worthy of special recognition in my opinion.  Every entry was proficient insofar as photographic technique is concerned, and more than a few were refreshing because they offered interesting perspectives on familiar subjects, because they were composed in ways that drew attention to the main subject without disregarding other details essential to understanding and appreciating the context in which the primary subject was found or arranged, or because they were unusual in some notable respect.  

 

The photographs I favored in the end were those I returned to multiple times.  These particular images are exceptionally well-executed, and held my interest for reasons of atmosphere, technical prowess, elegance, or raw power.  Each transcends the usual superficial qualities we expect in photography by communicating something beyond the contours of the subject itself and more profound than the circumstance in which the subject occurred.  All make an impression that will be remembered long after this year’s exhibit closes.  I extend my warmest thanks and congratulations to everyone who submitted photographic art this year.  I look forward to seeing more from you in the future.
