“When I judge 2-D art, the first thing I look for is a competent use of whatever medium(s) the artist is working with. After that, I look for the usual suspects – strong composition and unity, value and color use, any emotional or story-telling content, and visual invention and flair.
So, with that said, here was what I was not prepared for when judging this exhibit: The overall high level of artistic competency and energy!
This 2023 North Valley Art League exhibit is a testimony to the thriving art scene here in Redding. Thank you so much for inviting me to judge it!”
