Juror's Comments:

I am honored to be the juror of such a wonderful group of work. As a representation artist I am naturally drawn to that type of work. Craftsmanship is key in selecting pieces for this exhibit. Attention to detail for me is an important aspect in creating works of art. Also important is an emotional connection.

In choosing Best of Show, which was very difficult, it was these two aspects that stirred my decision. All of the works selected had either, or both of these attributes, making the choosing easy but the judging difficult.
