FALL SHOW JUROR'S STATEMENT
"I feel honored to be a part of your
2003 Art Show. The work is strong, colorful and creative. I
enjoyed just walking through the gallery and reacting to the art.
I think you have all done your group proud.
It was particularly difficult
selecting one painting over the others. You have strong painters,
people who are serious about their calling, and happy with their output.
I could easily have chosen many more for awards.
I tried to reward strong design,
expertise of media, and content. And once in a while I am rewarded
by standing in front of a piece so unique and so personal I almost gasp.
I would like to thank all the artists
for taking part in this Exhibition. And a special thanks to all
those who didn't earn their prize this time. You too make the show
worthwhile, and you push up the quality for everyone.
Again, thanks for inviting me.
Good luck in all your future endeavors."
Chris Van Winkle, NWS
