AWARD WINNERS (with juror’s comments) 

 

    

Joan Siem3 Primary Colors (In a Triangle), Mixed media
One can easily get lost in the unapologetic color and texture of this rainbow’s energizing surface.

 

Shyun Song – Psyche, Oil
A clean and immediate illustration of the titular concept. You can almost hear the ego revving into action!

 

Carolann TebbettsOpposites Attract, Felted wool
Elegant use of scale and downward movement imbue this piece with a certain ethereality. Perhaps it has fallen from the heavens?

 

Linda RogersThe Third Cat, Photographic collage
Surprisingly resonant with today’s online culture of memes —not only in form, but in its acutely aware humor.

 

Tiffany LandryHumpty Dumpty, Fish Head, Lover’s Quarrel (Tryptic), Oil
Exquisite technique, confectionary color, and a vague unease animate this massive and amusing trio.

 

Krista LaBella – Venus Altarpiece, Photography
Instead of reinforcing oppressive bodily standards, the artist compels us to recognize her majesty, and all within a setting that looks as casual as it does art-historical. Titian’s Venus never seemed this fierce.
