Juror's Statement: 
The work selected for this exhibit includes a variety of thoughtful and well conceived demonstrations of line as a primary compositional device. In the visual arts line is fundamentally an intellectual concept that appears as boundary, direction, or structural component in the work each of these artists created. While the broader definition of line would also include “implied line” as a possibility, I chose to focus on the more direct application of linear considerations as a means by which a more coherent sample of works could be chosen from the many fine pieces that were entered. In the spirit of the exhibition title: The Hard Line, I singled out those works for awards in which the use of line was the critical organizational feature. Thank you for inviting me to participate in this event and congratulations to everyone involved.  ~ Juror Ted Wood
