Juror's Statement

"The advantage of acrylic paint is that it dries fast. The disadvantage of acrylic paint is that it dries fast."
Ray Bravo - fellow student, California State University at Long Beach, 1969

Over the last twenty-five years, I have had the pleasure of being invited to jury a large number of local, regional and national art exhibitions. Being a practicing artist myself, I find the jury process to be an enjoyable, exciting, and extremely difficult task.

The quality of the work submitted for the International Society of Acrylic Painters, 10th Annual International Exhibition was exceptionally strong, making this jury process unusually difficult. If not for the restrictions of the exhibition space, I could have easily selected twice the number of pieces and still maintained the very high quality of this exhibition. The works selected for this exhibition clearly demonstrate the versatility of the acrylic medium. I have tried to pick strong, professional work that employs this medium to its best advantage, using both the formal and conceptual elements to create a unique work of art. The works range from "Photo Real" to the abstract, non-objective and mixed media, mirroring the diversity of the international art scene today.

I am looking forward to seeing this show installed, it will be a wonderful exhibition, and, I'm sure, a huge hit with the viewing public. It has been a true pleasure to work with the people connected to ISAP, in particular Kate Burridge, the Exhibition Director, for her tireless work and professionalism.
