“Jurying the National Prize Show was exciting and challenging–exciting to see such a wide range of art from across the country, but challenging to narrow a field of over a thousand entries to an exhibition of about 85 works. In my selection I focused on visual impact and originality with the goal of representing the variety of media that was submitted.  I was particularly attentive to the artists’ choice and use of medium for expressing the subject of their work.  It was reassuring to see so many fresh and innovative approaches to a number of traditional subjects.  Also impressive were the number of outstanding abstract paintings. I want to convey my appreciation to the many artists who entered the National Prize Show and congratulate those who made the cut, in particular the prize winners.  Special thanks to the board and staff of the Cambridge Art Association for providing artists the opportunity to exhibit–and the public to enjoy—excellent examples of contemporary art.”
