Kittitas County Juried Exhibition
Every year we highlight work by artists from Kittitas County. Lisa Kinoshita, an artist and independent curator from Tacoma, has juried this year’s show and will select $3500 in awards.
View a slideshow of all the 2017 juried show submissions.
“I want to thank all of the artists who put their work forward for the 2017 Kittitas County Exhibition. Out of 141 entries from 65 artists, 37 pieces were selected by 31 artists. The wide range of styles and subject matter of the submissions made my job as juror an invigorating and difficult one. While individual pieces stood out for originality, composition or technical skill, the ultimate choices were subjective. I appreciate that Gallery One permitted me to make the awards after viewing the actual artworks, not digital images. Some pieces struck a chord immediately. Others beckoned for a third, fourth or fifth look through the long process of paring down the list. Some demonstrated long practice; others threw tradition to the wind. One really cannot compare apples and oranges. One can only attempt to select the best exemplars of each fruit, and give the rest of the viewing world a delicious bite.”
