Tinola Mayfield-Guerrero – 2021 Juror

Judging artwork is never easy and this  show was no expection to that. I was impressed, inspired, and intrigued by the variety of work submitted. 

 As a juror, I looked for an artist to tell me a story, to provoke contemplation or to outwardly articulate the inner workings of creativity. This year’s art show had work that did exactly that! I enjoyed experiencing the textures, the colors and contours of the art. From the fibers, to the mixed media, from the oil to the watercolors, the pieces of this show take the viewer on an eclectic journey.  
 
It was a pleasure to be part of this year’s show.”
