A Grand Jury?

Case Tractor - 5" x 7" - oil


This past weekend I started working on my entries for some upcoming juried exhibition shows. It can be nerve racking entering these shows because you have no idea what the jurors are looking for or how they determine their picks. More than likely you'll never know what they're thinking whether good or bad. I've been a juror a few times and have seen some of the most ridiculous ways of selecting art for a show. My personal favorite is "Eeny meeny miney no." It's led me to not take anything too personal with juried shows.
