THE JUDGES AND THE JUDGING PROCESS
The jurist panel consists of three independent judges, selected from across the country for their in-depth knowledge and experience in multiple art mediums. In October, they will review the digital images of all applicants to select the Festival artists and the Wait List artists. In March, this same panel will review the work of the exhibitors, determining those artists they consider outstanding (eligible for awards). They will select one piece, representative of the artist’s body of work, from each of these outstanding artists for final judging on Saturday morning. Only the Best of Show and the Morse Museum awards are presented for individual works. Awards are presented solely at the discretion of the judges.

  • Jerry Allen Gilmore resides in St. Paul, MN and is an artist, director, lecturer and curator in Colorado, Arizona and the Midwest. 
     
  • Novie Trump, founder and director of Flux Studios, a contemporary art studio, is a resident of Mt. Rainier, MD and a sculptor and installation artist in ceramics and mixed media.
