Exhibiting at Ameriserv Bank
Franklin Street, Johnstown
March 28 - 25, 2015
YONG SOOK KIM LAMBERT served as our Juror for the Spring Show 2015
Juror's Statement - First of all, I would like to thank Allied Artists of Johnstown for the honor and privilege to serve as juror in this year's spring show. I have served as a juror before, but I feel that it was much more difficult to jury for this show because there were so many wonderful works.
As a juror, my first reactions are instinctive. I respond to works that surprise and hold my attention. In this show I looked for unique and imaginative techniques used to create familiar subjects. I also looked for pieces which told a story or moved me emotionally, either by means of expressions, gestures, color, or design. When I view realistic pieces, I consider the quality of the basic drawing. This is also the foundation of every great painting, and without it, the work will not be a success.
Finally, I would like to express my appreciation to the Allied Artists of Johnstown committee and to Kathleen Kase Burk, president; and to all the artists who entered their pieces for the Spring Show. I encourage all of you to continue to work hard, and I congratulate those who have received awards.
