Judge's Statement:
It is an honor to judge the Gateway Pastel Artists Exhibit. I enjoyed the great range of subject matter and application of pastel, along with the use of color, strong contrast as well as the subtle color change.  I looked for good composition, stong contrast, creativity and rendering of medium, and of course overall mood within the piece – I want to “feel” something when I look at a painting.  Congratulations to all the entrants and award winners for sharing their visions and talent, making and overall interesting and wonderful show.  ~ Linda S. Wilmes
