Juror's Statement

 

As artists we visually express our intimate thoughts, ideas and personal interpretations through our artwork. We create for ourselves -- for our own reasons, so perhaps the best judgment of the success of the work should be left up to the individual artist. However in a juried exhibition, success is determined according to a juror’s standards and criteria. It takes a bit of courage to enter a juried show and expose your efforts to critique and possible disapproval. But to those who took a chance and submitted to the International Society of Acrylic Painters Juried Exhibition I wish to extend my congratulations, whether your works were selected or not!

 

I was set to the task of selecting this show from 200 entries. The job was particularly difficult when so many well executed and interesting pieces were presented. If your artwork was not chosen it does not mean that it isn’t good. It is simply an indication that it did not fit - due to numbers restrictions or my personal vision for this particular exhibition.

 

What was I looking for? Honesty, creativity, good design and a unique vision catch my eye before technical skill. I have a hard time resisting artwork that displays a sense of place or captures a fleeting moment and I do love being caught off guard by a piece that I find humorous.

 

General comments for improving your chances of having work accepted into future juried on-line exhibitions:

 

Always make your best presentation! Remember that the juror needs to visualize the painting as accurately as possible. Digital images must be clear and in focus. Check the white balance and exposure so that the color and light are correct. Square your camera to the image to eliminate distortion. Crop out any matting, frame or background - show only the painting. In this exhibition I was most impressed by the overall quality of the images!

 

Because the work comes to the judge on a computer screen it is essential that you provide the correct measurements. The proportions indicated need to make sense - if the information suggests that your work is square but the images is a rectangle the juror may question if it has been cropped. Likewise be sure that you correctly indicate if the measurement is in inches or feet.

 

I found it most helpful when descriptions indicated the type of support (canvas, paper, wood etc.) as well as notations about additional elements such as collage, charcoal, and oil pastel.

 

Do submit more than one entry. You will more than double your chances as the juror compares each of your pieces.

 

Present a consistent style. Show the juror one thing that you do well, rather than everything that you can do. While it is acceptable to submit different subjects, there must be a quality in the work that stands out as uniquely you.

 

Paint something different or paint it in a different way. Frequently a juror attempts to put together a show that presents a variety of styles and subject matter.

 

Most important - always paint for yourself. If your work is accepted - great! If not, don’t take it personally - try again.

 

Happy painting!

 

Linda
