About Juried Exhibits
Jurors: Amy Wilson and Sarah Merideth founded Framations Custom Framing business in 2005 and opened their brick and mortar shop with the addition of the art gallery in 2006. Before their 14+ years of Gallery ownership, exhibit management and 40+ combined years of framing experience: Amy's background includes decades of management experience in photo labs with both film and digital media, home decor, and custom framing. Sarah's background includes a BA in art with experience in working in and critiquing multimedia work, and several years of management and framing experience.
Over the years, the owners of Framations have been asked repeatedly what a juror is looking for and more often why particular pieces were not chosen to be part of an exhibit. As part a nod to the 15th annual exhibit and also an experiment in critique and appreciation to the artists exhibiting with Framations, the owners have to decide to co-jury Beyond the Lens XV.
The owners are offering this exhibit as a critique process for artists. Each piece entered will have at least a brief comment provided from the jurors in regards to either why it was accepted, why it was declined, or some other constructive criticism intended to encourage and improve the artist’s craft. As we all know, there is a level of subjectivity in any sort of judgement, but the elements of art as well as technique. craftsmanship and presentation will be a focus.
