In regards to the “Portrait” exhibit and the finalists selected, juror Liz Jorg Masi commented, “The portrait and figure are what we relate to the most as human beings; it has also been regarded as the highest form of painting. Given the challenging task of selecting finalists, I looked for strength in the artist’s technique, a strong knowledge of the face and figure and the artist’s response to their subject. The technical aspect of brushwork, hard and soft edges, color, and values are all the result of the artist talent and vision.” Ms. Masi will be on hand at the opening reception to present Best in Show and Honorable Mention awards.
