From the Studio to the Wall - Jurying Botanical Art Exhibitions

Thursday, April 13, 2023

Class Description:

How are works selected in juried exhibitions? In this webinar we’ll learn how juries are chosen and how they operate. Artworks are scored using specific criteria, and these criteria can contribute to a deeper analysis of what characterizes a successfully conceived and executed artwork. After gaining understanding of the process, participants divide up into teams and jury a small exhibition of their own. Each team’s selections are compared and discussed.
