Juror: Mary Alice Braukman
I want to thank NAPA-USA for giving me the opportunity to jury the Association's Sixth International Exhibition. All the submissions, whether realistic or abstract, showed high professional standards. In making my selections, I sought works that both displayed technical skill and went beyond the mechanics of technique. I looked for quality, craftsmanship, strong design, and good composition. In choosing works for a well-balanced exhibition, I looked for those displaying the artist's personal visual statement. I believe the show is made up of paintings that demonstrate knowledge and confidence in the handling of mixed water media.
My thanks to all the artists who shared their paintings with me. Thanks to Linda Gunn, the NAPA Board of Directors, and the many NAPA volunteers. And a special thanks to Exhibition Director Gerry Willging for the professional manner in which she sent me the slides for jurying; this simplified my job and made the task most enjoyable.
I look forward to seeing the paintings in person and selecting the awards. It has been an honor to jury, and it will be an honor to judge, the exhibition.

Clearly, a good time was had by all, as indicated by the following snapshots:

like the majority of buildings in Santa Fe,
