Juror’s Statement

Thank you for the opportunity to juror the Member Show. It was great pleasure to see a range of media as well as a mix of traditional to contemporary works. Now that we live in a largely digital world it reminds me how essential it is to see work in person; to see scale, texture, technique and the thought in its presentation. It is a great reminder why these opportunities are so invaluable to someone who may be beginning their practice to established artists.

 

As someone who works with artists on a daily basis and is an artist it’s always necessary to learn about people or guilds that I am unfamiliar with as well as become reacquainted with those that are not a part of my immediate circle.  It never ceases to amaze me of the richness of talent in the Philadelphia region and the community organizations that foster and nurture their practice and how vitally important they are to the arts and cultural community.
