Judge Robbie Laird said this about judging art exhibitions, “I search for the individual artist in each piece and for the artist’s ability to communicate. I was intrigued by the new way the artist found to say what is familiar. I always look for an individual and unique voice. What does this artist have to say.”

"There are no two identical ways artwork can be viewed. There is no right or wrong when viewing artwork our minds need to be as open as a child’s, playing with colorful building blocks or choosing colors from a box of crayons filled with possibilities." - Christine Alfery
