From the American Women Artists (AWA) organization:
With 995 entries in our 2018 Spring Online Juried Show, the exhibition winners should be extremely proud of their accomplishment. The final 117 entries that make up the Online show were selected by artists Dyana Hesson, Cathryn Jenkins, and Elizabeth Pollie. The award winners were chosen by Elizabeth Pollie, AWA Master Member and owner of Elizabeth Pollie Fine Art Gallery in Harbor Springs, Michigan.
“The American Women Artists,” wrote Elizabeth about the show, “with its mission to inspire, celebrate and provide exposure for women working within the visual arts, welcomes a very broad variety of genres, mediums, and styles. This spirit of inclusivity is easily illustrated in every AWA exhibit, and I found the 2018 Spring Online Juried show to be no exception. Each of the award winners ‘owns’ their particular style. The work is thoughtfully and successfully executed, and each has a level of mastery that transcends the cliches that can tend to weaken some work.”
