May 20th - June 30th, 2023

Nationwide Show of Art
10" x 10" 10" or Smaller

Artists Reception and Award Ceremony Presented by Juror Brian Paulsen; Saturday 20th, 

2 - 4 pm


Juror's Statement:

          It is always a visual delight to view so much diversity of imagery, medium handling and symbols.  The choosing of work for inclusion in the exhibit was fairly efficient.  The choosing of awards is made more difficult by viewing the actual pieces. 

          The overall impression of the show is a very positive feeling of artists still producing mature well-thought out results, in an alluring variety of materials.

          I would like to thank Rita Haag and Pirjo Berg for their superb organization and diligent work.

                                                              Brian Paulsen
