Juror's Statement


Thank you for inviting me to jury the ISAP 2014 Exhibition. It was a privilege and an honor for me to jury this prominent & highly respected show.  My best wishes to all who entered. Congratulations to all who were selected for this exhibition and especially to those who receive an award. 


It was quite a challenge to jury this show. I was extremely frustrated by a large number of fabulous entries whose size exceeded the limit and therefore I had to eliminate them for that reason.  Artists need to learn to read each prospectus carefully. I believe it is a remarkable, unified exhibition representing the wide range of excellent work submitted and the vast variety of styles.


I was responsive to design, technique, style and subject matter but I tried to be equally sensitive to content and concept.  I believe this is an excellent and diverse exhibit with paintings that are imaginative and innovative and depict the diversity of the entrants in subject and style. 


Thank you to all who helped compile the entries into a well organized digital presentation and to all those who helped on award jury day.  It certainly made the jury process a smooth and pleasurable one.


Again Congratulations to All !
