Judge’s Statement

Positive Vibes: Peace, Love and Understanding Through Art

Congratulations to the participants! This is a tough topic to interpret. And despite our common experience over the past year with COVID-19, we each have had unique responses to the challenges we and our friends, family, and colleagues have experienced.

And that is what I most noted, in reviewing these works: an incredible variety. Secondarily, I responded to the range of competencies and imagination, from florals and still lifes to linocuts and landscape and illustration.

In the end, I had to resort to judging and ranking, and awarding based on my gut-level, emotional response. After all, the topic of the exhibit guided artists to work on that level. So virtuosity ranked below substance and expression of feeling. When I FELT a strong response to a piece, that pushed its ranking higher. Please look at my assessment and see if you agree!
