Thank you for giving me the honor of judging this show. It was a real treat to view all the submitted artwork as I marveled at a variety of mediums, subject matters and different artistic expressions.
As a juror, I looked at composition, technical proficiency, originality, content, presentation and how all the design components came together to create a compelling image.
Award winners demonstrated how eloquently they could communicate their initial vision using their unique voice and their work spoke to me.
Congratulations to all the participating artists for your achievement and inspiration you are giving us through your beautiful creations.
