It has been an honor and a privilege to judge the 2010 Redlands Art Association Multi Media Mini Show. This is a show that truly consists of little treasures of art.
I became aware of the Redlands Art Association while working on the art collection of the National Orange Show. As we were researching the various artists for the show, I heard nothing but praise about the association’s helpfulness and professionalism. Those qualities made judging this show a joyful experience for me.
The characteristics I was seeking as I was critiquing the various pieces were as follows: beauty, skill, inherent meaning, uniqueness, and fulfilled intent. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but there are some aspects that are definable, such as patterns and symmetry, colors that are complementary, interesting textures, and compositions that focus the eye, proportion, and presentation. Of course, work not done with skill and attention to detail, fails no matter how interesting. Inherent meaning is the power of the work. Does it tell a story? Make a statement or illicit emotion in the viewer? Uniqueness refers to art that explores old or new subjects in a way that is fresh and different. And fulfilled intent comes back to what the artist is trying to say. The best art has meaning beyond just an image. It also stands out in a crowd, and dares to be different. The winning entries are wondrous examples of these characteristics.
I would like to congratulate all the entrants. Seeing such a wealth of fine work is a pleasure!
