Meet our 2017 judges.
Each judge is an established, well-respected member of the art community. Many are award-winning professional artists. Others are professionals working in the art industry such as, magazine publishers/editors and gallery directors. Each has a discerning eye for choosing the best of the Master Class category, for recognizing up and coming talent from the Emerging Artist category and they are able to see the potential in a Budding Artist regardless of medium or genre. We provid links to each judge’s website for you to check them out. Judges will be announced at the beginning of each month.
