Jurors Elizabeth Barton, David Revere McFadden and Sandra Sider viewed nearly 800 images from 300 artist entries and chose 45 pieces for the exhibition.
Elizabeth Barton described her experience as a juror on her blog: http://elizabethbarton.blogspot.com/2012/04/aqe-philadelphia-2012-jurying-shouts.html
Kate Themel (seen here next to her AQE piece “Stars Not Included”) was thrilled to have her work chosen for this incredibly diverse and inspiring collection. She was very happy to see many fellow SAQA-CT members in attendance at the opening reception.
