Jurors' Statements

 

 

 

"Judging an art exhibition is a mentally and physically

grueling process, albeit a highly rewarding one. When there is more than one juror, the process becomes an exercise in enlightenment, debate and negotiation.

As a juror, craftsmanship and presentation are what catch

my eye and draw me in; a well-organized and informed

concept is what holds me there. This combination is what I was looking for when selecting work for the Spring Show. I

would like to thank ArtSpace for allowing me this

opportunity and Robert Lepo for making the process an

enjoyable one."

 

Melissa Eddings is Associate Professor of Art at the Wilson Art Center and Gallery Director for the Elzay and Stambaugh Theater galleries at Ohio Northern University.  She teaches beginning painting, foundations, drawing, figure drawing, and all levels of printmaking.  Melissa received her B.F.A. from Ohio University in Athens and her M.F.A. from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.  Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the Midwest and Northeast. Currently, her focus has been on the contemporary relationship between bookbinding and printmaking.

 

 

"One has to look closely to study and discern the

challenges and sacrifices made by the artists of

this year's Spring Show, ArtSpace/Lima. 

 

Their personal 'statements' reveal how they portray life. 

There were highlights selected from the numerous

categories to reflect who made that 'connection'. 

Each creation appealed to the standards of quality, craftsmanship and sensitivity to detail, medium and

subject matter.  Competition was strong in all categories, especially ceramics, painting and drawing.  Participation

was heavy except in the sculpture category.  The public

will have an opportunity to view the talents of northwest Ohio's most gifted artists where art is alive and well."

 

Robert Lepo runs LepoWorks, Inc. (established in 1975) with his brother, David Lepo.  He creates interior and exterior art for private and corporate clients internationally, consulting on architectural standards from concept to installation.
