Jurors' Statements


  “It was a pleasure to serve as a judge for the Kewpee Invitational again this year. It is exciting to see the work from area students and to see that new schools are participating. We saw nice diversity in the works submitted and were able to select many quality pieces. Of special note were the ambition of the Best of Show selection,
creativity in the sculpture, ceramics, and mixed media works, and the contemporary sophistication of the 1st place drawing.  I wish all the students the best as they continue to create art and submit for exhibition opportunities.”
  Brooke Hunter-Lombardi is an artist, educator and creative consultant from Columbus, OH. Working with all age groups she has taught at many national conferences and has over 14 years experience teaching color theory, visual journaling, art and design at the college level. Brooke’s printmaking, collage, mixed media and one-of-a-kind books have exhibited regionally in many juried and invitational exhibitions.   Max Meyer is the Curator of Children and Family Programs at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art and Regional Director of the Scholastic Art and Writing Region. His focus and philosophies are art has the ability to change lives, expand minds, tell stories and experience that cross socioeconomic and cultural barriers.  These stem from being a third generation painter and his mentorship with renowned artist and educator, Simon Donovan while attending the University of Arizona.  




A special Thank You to Harry Shutt

ArtSpace/Lima and all of the participating

high schools, the student artists, and their teachers
