Third Annual Art and Earth Celebration
2013 Best in Show
"June 14" by Cathy Wilkin
Harpers Ferry, West Virginia
The Juror, Geraldine Kiefer, selected 41 works by 28 artists. Congratulations to the accepted artists.
I thoroughly enjoyed jurying this show, particularly because my own work concerns landscape, thematic and conceptual interpretations of nature, altered photography, and mixed media.
When viewing the works I interpreted "art and earth" quite broadly, looking for innovative and thoughtful applications of media, imagery and materials. I loved the mixed-media and three-dimensional work, which I found to be really creative and "out of the box." Moreover, I found submissions in painting and photography worthy of note, and acceptance.
This is a wonderful and "earthy" show for both artists and viewers, opening a window to spring!
