Kamloops Arts Council ART EXPOSED
Who are Jurors? Jurors are 3-4 working artists with specialties in a variety of mediums. We try to choose a mixture of sculptors, painters, digital artists, etc. Jurors should be experienced in critique. The Kamloops Arts Council recognizes that each judge will bring his or her own unique artistic knowledge and experience to the process. (We think that’s the fun part!)
What do Jurors do? Jurors will provide feedback to artists exhibiting in Art Exposed. They will also choose artists who are awarded prizes for their work.
When? Jurors will be expected to provide 6 hours for judging on March 2nd, 2023 and 2 – 6 hours on March 4th, 2023 for individual critiques. Our opening night/awards ceremony is also the evening of March 3rd with optional (but preferred) attendance.
Where? The Old Courthouse!
Some more details:
The Kamloops Arts Council will provide evaluation criteria to jurors on jurying day. Jurors will use the evaluation criteria to judge each piece in the exhibit based on four elements: design elements, skill in handling of media, originality, and presentation. After individual evaluations, jurors will come together to rank their top picks in each category and decide on prize winners. Prizes will be awarded to 1st and 2nd place winners in the 2D and 3D categories for emerging and established artists, as well as a “Youth – Jurors’ Choice” prize. Eligible jurors, staff, and committee members may not receive prizes. Only residents of the TNRD are eligible for prizes.
There is an honorarium awarded to partcipating jurors. Jurors will not be allowed to award prizes to art belonging to their relatives or loved-ones
