Visual Arts Alliance presents Inside the Selection Process
Visual Arts Alliance offers members and guests a rare insight into a juror’s selection process for art competitions with a free discussion by three prominent figures in the Houston art world: Jennifer Justice, Executive Director of Galveston Arts Center; Lester Marks, Mayor's Ambassador to the Arts.; and Zoya Tommy, owner of Zoya Tommy Gallery.
The three speakers, all of whom have been jurors for VAA, will discuss their selection processes when judging a competition. Previously submitted works will be projected for the audience, and panelists will discuss the selection/elimination process applied to each work. Artists will discover the whys and hows of selection from a juror’s point of view, including the constants of technique and presentation as well as the unique personal biases of jurors.
