ABOUT THE JUROR:  Our Juror for this exhibit is Daven Anderson. A graduate of the US Naval Academy, nuclear engineer and submariner, with an MBA from the University of Chicago, Mr. Anderson served as CEO of a number of private companies for more than 35 years before retiring in 2010 and returning to his life-long passion – Art.  He currently serves on the Boards of the Sheldon Art Galleries, the Mercantile Library Art Advisory Board, the College of Fine Art and Communications at the University of Missouri St. Louis and Les Amis.  He teaches studio art at the University of Missouri St. Louis, watercolor workshops across the country and monthly day and evening classes in his studio/gallery in the Lafayette Square neighborhood of St. Louis.   He is an official US Coast Guard artist and is currently preparing a museum exhibition of 50 of his works on the life and industry on our inland waterways.  Daven is currently the Managing Director of the American Society of Marine Artists and the Executive Director of the Missouri Watercolor Society. 
Juror's Statement: Judging an all medium exhibition is both a challenging and exhilarating experience.  Challenging because the vastly different mediums used to express the artist’s conception have their own personalities and potentials.  Exhilarating because the possibilities become infinite.  With a themed exhibition, I try to peer into the soul of the work and try to glimpse the passion and purpose of the artist in his or her creation of the work of art.  Of course, the basics need to be there as well – does the work echo the theme, does it have good composition.  Is it balanced, well executed, have good value and hue selection?  But overall, what does it say and does it say it well?  You are all to be congratulated on your efforts.  Everyone in his or her way tried to show the ‘Journey’ – whatever that may be.  My advice to all is simple – ‘Show Up’.  You cannot grow as an artist unless you ‘Show Up’ – pick up your brush or pen or chop sticks – and paint.  As my students hear over and over, you don’t learn to play the piano by watching a pianist.  You learn by doing. Paint!  As much as possible, whenever possible! ~ Daven Anderson
