2022 Art Show Award-Winning Art
Thank you, Manito Art League, for the privilege and honor of being your awards judge for this year's wonderful exhibition. I am impressed, delighted and personally inspired by the overall creativity and quality of the many fine art pieces in this show. Thank you to every exhibitor and to the many volunteers and patrons it takes to nurture and continue the tradition of a quality exhibition like this. Everyone involved should be very proud!
Something we’re all interested in is how a judge makes their decisions. After all, art is very subjective. Trying to be objective, some of my criteria includes: good designing, skillful handling of the medium, uniqueness of vision and personal expression. Bottom line, I’m looking for “the head, the hands and the heart” of the artist.
