Juror Statement: Kim Anderson
Go Wild exemplifies a wealth of talent and creativity showcased in this area. I am truly humbled and inspired by the volume and quality of artwork submitted. As I approached the jurying process I employed my experience and perspective as an artist, reflecting on the overarching tone of the exhibition as well as conversations established between various works submitted. I attempted to evoke balance in thematic directions, formal qualities and creative innovation. My selection of awards highlights what I determined to be the best of these qualities. As always, these decisions are not easy but were ultimately informed by the artist’s ability to successfully synthesize form and content along with a well-crafted presentation. Submitting work to an open call is courageous and a vital contribution towards a dynamic community, embodied here in the ambition and scope of this exhibition. I am honored to have been able to contribute as a creative collaborator in this process as I celebrate all of these artists and their ongoing artistic endeavors.
