We were honored to have Michael Kowbuz as this year's Juror.

He is the Director of Continuing education programs and adjunct faculty at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA,) bringing artists and the public together through an array of studio art classes and workshops, open to all ages and levels of ability. He is also the co-owner of Cerulean Arts Gallery and studio in Philadelphia with his wife Tina Rocha, displaying the work of hundreds of local artists since 2006. He holds a Master of Fine Arts from PAFA, and paints, draws, and makes prints.
