GMOA Associate Curator of Education, Judge and Jury
On Sunday, April 11, Georgia Museum of Art associate curator of education, Carissa DiCindio, traveled to Valdosta, Ga. to judge the Spring into Art exhibition at the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts. Nancy Bookhart, an art professor from Paine College who received her M.F.A. at UGA in 2005, and DiCindio took the entire afternoon to decide which 65 works out of 400+ submissions would be chosen for the juried exhibition. In addition to that, the two judges chose the best of show and decided the winners in 6 categories: drawing/painting, printmaking, photography, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, and jewelry/craft. All entries will be in an exhibition through May 26th, followed by an exhibition of the juried works opening on June 7, where the winners will be announced.
"There were a lot of excellent entries, and we had to make some very difficult choices in our selections," said DiCindio of her experience. "My favorite part about judging is that I feel like I got to know the artists in the region through their works. The staff members of the Turner Center were gracious hosts, and it was a wonderful trip."
