Judges Statement, by Leann Porrello


After being quarantined myself throughout 2020 I was very excited to judge, Quarantine Expressions and really see and feel what people went through during the year and how they expressed themselves through artwork. I based my decisions off the following 4 categories:

  1. Beauty in Art - shapes, patterns, symmetry, colors, textures, compositions, movement and flow

  2. Skill & Technique - the knowledge and application of chosen medium

  3. Inherent Meaning of Theme / Fulfilled intent - statement, emotions, story

  4. Uniqueness or originality
