Jurors' Statements












It is a privilege and honor to serve as one of two jurors for this year’s ArtSpace/Lima Spring Show. I take very seriously the responsibility that comes with the task.


It is never easy selecting which work to include.  When I jury a show, my selections are based on a comparative high level of skill, craft and an understanding of the medium. In addition, one must take into consideration the conceptual elements, the idea behind the piece, the uniqueness of the idea and how that subject matter is approached and dealt with.


Congratulations to all who were included. To those who were not...I'm afraid rejection is part of the game. I for one could paper my living room with all the letters of rejection I have received over the last forty years as an exhibiting artist.


Thanks to Bill Sullivan for the opportunity and thanks to Art/Space Lima for its enthusiastic support of the visual artists of northwest Ohio.

It was a pleasure to serve as a Juror for the ArtSpace/Lima 2011 Spring Exhibition. It proved to be an extraordinary experience viewing the work of so many creative individuals from Northwest Ohio. I want to thank Bill Sullivan and all of the artists who submitted their work for jurying. The call was open to any artist living within 100 miles of Lima working within one or more of the disciplines of painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, digital art, or mixed media. The response to the call was equally diverse, visually and thematically. There were an almost equal number of representational, abstract and non-representational artworks, which speaks of a broad understanding of numerous traditions associated with making art.  I believe the works included in the exhibition will reflect two of the criteria I used in evaluating the work. Display of technical proficiency and an original aesthetic sensibility. I would like to offer congratulations to everyone who has work in the exhibition. Congratulations to the award winners for providing ArtSpace/Lima with some particularly compelling works to exhibit.  Thank you.
