JUROR STATEMENT

Congruence 

To be congruent means to be in harmony, agreement, and compatibility.


The artists I selected from this recent call for I Like Your Work Podcast Summer Juried Exhibition had a high degree of personal congruence that stood out.  I found that many of them had harmony in their portfolios and how they presented their work for the call to art.


Being an artist is a lifetime process. It means constant evolution and honing of one’s skillsets for the mediums and methods of artmaking.  The 500+ applicants gave me the challenge to call out who was meeting that challenge now as a creative.


I got to review portfolios from around the United States and abroad, see wonderful ideas and processes in action and appreciate the incredible amount of diversity that is available in how someone decides how to make art and what their artwork is really about.  I saw many refreshing ideas including weaving with street posters and working with color and color combinations that were stunning.


Many of the artists had ideas that were energizing and thought-provoking and some of them literally took me away as I wondered if they were exploring imagery from memory, imagination, or their backyard or hometown.


It was a pleasure to get to know all of you through what you shared and I congratulate the accepted works and urge those who had works that were not selected to stay the course and keep making art!
