Rosanne Thrall, Visual Arts Center Director at HCAF, stated “As you can see from the awards, this show offers a wide variety of media. Sincere thanks to Teri Valentine, the judge of this year’s show. She had a very diverse group of work to consider and was very impressed by the wide variety and talent represented at this show. From fiber to oils to clay to photography, these local artists have proven how much talent resides in the hill country, and we are proud to be a part of it.”

Teri Valentine, the judge, had this to say about her decision, “My first step in judging this exhibition was to familiarize myself with the prospectus. The goal of my first walkthrough was to note those particular pieces that reached out and spoke to me as the theme of “Altars and icons” was described. I approach each piece analytically, looking at composition, design elements, as well as the artist technique or use of their medium.”
