SVC Annual Juried Student Online Art Exhibition

Juror’s Statement

It was a pleasure to see a sampling of work from Skagit Valley College art students, albeit in a digital way during an historic global crisis. 

The group of submissions was small but gave me an insight into how the student artists made decisions about form, material, scale, intention, space and other aesthetic parameters. In all cases, the submissions were three-dimensional and the medium was clay with either fired glazes or the application of paint. I found the slate of work to be thoughtful, resolved and authentic.

Thank you for the opportunity to participate as a juror.
