6:00-7:00pm  Juror’s Criteria – What are Jurors Looking For? – Presenters: Joe Mac Kachnie, Leon White and Ray Fischer
We all want acceptance, it is a basic human desire. You entered the Art Show and your goal is acceptance. What can you as an artist do to improve the odds that your piece will be accepted … ‘juried in’ to the show? This experienced panel of jurors will explain the art critique process and provide tips for creating great art. What really matters, the first impression, design, color, composition, technique, style, presentation, creativity? The more you know the better you can be.
