Juror's Statement
     In this chaotic time, it was both refreshing and comforting to see such a varied collection of mediums and styles. I was delighted by the quality of work submitted which also made for many difficult decisions. Old Barn by Karen Lehr and Sandstone Flame by Peter Bowman were wonderfully executed and brought a sense of quiet and peacefulness during such an unsettling time, while works like Aedes Albopictex by Beth Cunningham and Bubblefish by Marsha Krohn brought a lighthearted irreverence to the exhibition. The awards provided me with an opportunity to highlight themes from life before the pandemic as well as emphasizing a few pieces that might bring laughter and humor back to our lives.
     I would like to thank the Galveston Art League and all the artists that submitted to this juried exhibition. As a juror, it is exciting to see so much work and it is a brave act on the part of the artists to submit their work to the jurying process.
