First off, I would like to thank every juror who has ever judged an art show! It was an extremely difficult task, and once I had a working list of top contenders, the final decisions were excruciating. The work was amazingly strong, and although I have seen them online, it just isnâ€™t the same as seeing each piece in person. Now that Iâ€™ve been on the other side of jurying, I am so much more appreciative of every single award I have ever received. Congratulations to all of the artists who entered! Â Judy Lalingo, judge
