Our Juror this year was Joann Hensel
 
Juror’s Statement

To have the honor and opportunity to judge this interesting and varied show has been a privilege. I value your trust. It was a fun show to see… all levels of expertise and execution. There were those painters who were very accomplished, and those who are studying, taking workshops and improving their work, and still developing a style.

This show is a wonderful opportunity to compare their own work with others. It is a perfect show to spread their wings in the competitive art place. I would hope that my involvement, my training and experience in judging, will be helpful. Thanks to PWS and all the participants!
