Juror's Statement from Tina Dillman
First of all, I would like to say that it was an honor being asked to juror the 75th Annual Member show, Waterworks, as celebrating that consistency and dedication is an impressive milestone. Thank you Suzie Sparks for asking me to participate!
Before announcing the awards, I would first like to thank all the PWS members that submitted work, as I think it’s important especially in this current time and climate, to keep producing work, as art making can be a healthy outlet and activity to help you process your thoughts and emotions. I encourage all of you to stay connected to your fellow artists and continue the sense of community that has developed out of your membership, as I think now more than ever, we need each other. Now, as a disclaimer, I want to admit that it is always difficult to choose awards (especially only viewing them online), and I want in no way this to deter any of you from submitting work in the future, because what you all are doing is important, as there is a viewership for every style. So, please keep making!
My choices for these awards were based on quality, personal development of style, and context of the work, as I look for work that inspires me and makes me think and/or feel.
1st Place: Yelena Lamm, 2nd Place: Connie Clutter, 3rd Place: Kathleen Zimbicki and Honorable Mentions: Patrick Varriano & Keith Williams. Congratulations to all of you!!!

Secret inside tip-for those that come to the events each person will receive one silkscreen poster that I'm having someone local make, so everyone has a take away!
