“JUROR: Mark Ormond, an independent curator, writer, lecturer and consultant.
Art Center Sarasota invited contemporary artists from across the nation to submit work for Sarasota’s premier national open, all media, all subjects, juried exhibition. Visitors will have an opportunity to see diverse artistic mediums and talent both locally and nationally.
Studying each work of art I sought to discover the challenge that each artist had set for themselves in their chosen medium. I particularly appreciated those that added to the language and method of expression that already exists in that medium. The ten award winners demonstrated exceptional achievement and success. -Mark Ormond
