Introducing the 2017 Artist Market Judges

19-Dec-2016 Did you know the festival calls on the talent and leadership of arts industry professionals to select the participants in the Artist Market each year? Our panel of jurors composed of local arts educators, gallery owners and professional artists – all established in their careers – selects participants through a blind jury process. The jury team differs each year to offer a fresh perspective, and the members see nothing but the artwork when making their decisions.


Our 2017 judges are: clay artist and retired arts educator Martha Cook, President & CEO of The Ross Jewelry Company Thomas A. Ross, sculptor Elite Shaier, photographer Kate Belle, graphic designer and arts educator Molly Downey Newton and commercial and corporate photographer Brad Newton.
