Art Juror – Lunar New Year – Tet – Art Contest- Culture

One of the most rewarding, but also challenging tasks asked of arts professionals is to jury a show. Within the short time span of a few hours, one is asked to make hundreds of decisions. Is this work in? Is this work out? Does this work merit an award? Which work, among this diverse range of media deserves to be called “the best?”




The LGAA Member’s Juried Show at the JCC has been receiving “wonderful reviews and Comments” according to Rabbi James Green at the JCC.  Because the show has been so well received they would “greatly appreciate” the LGAA extending the show to February 8th.  On January 25th , one major event called “Jewbilee”.  This year’s theme for “Jewbilee” is the south bay:   700- 800 people will attend this one day event.

Painting #2:  “Possibilities” is the idea of connecting the dots. When we connect one dot to another we create a new possibility. With a network of connecting dots we are creating infinite possibilities. In this painting, each brush stroke can be compared to a dot, when I connect one brush stroke with another brush stroke, when I choose the colors, the focal point I connect the idea, the shape, the form, different possibilities to create art. Painted: October 2014. Reserved for exhibition.
