Juror's Statement - ' I'm always amazed when I see exhibitions in our region. The talent that lives here is remarkable. It rivals anywhere else. The diversity of the media and subject matter is also, always impressive. When I jury an exhibition, my favorites are the pieces that are attractive from both far away, and, up close. Critical to me are good composition and design. The overall impact is always important. The intricate details, up close, can push the piece to the next level. It's always a challenge for me as a person, to say that one creation is better than another. When we, as artists, put our heart and soul into creating something from nothing, and then subject ourselves to the whims of another person's eyes, that takes alot of courage. As a person and fellow artist, I think that every piece in this exhibition is amazing.
I applaud all of you. I thank you for the honor of being a part of your exhibition.'
Scott Steberger, a 1989 graduate of Penn State University and fellow artist exhibiting extensively in Western Pennsylvania
