The Art of Jurying Art Work
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association welcomes artist and educator, George Rivera as their June guest artist. Well-liked and respected, Rivera will present a lecture to understand the jurying process in judging works of art.
George Rivera is an art administrator, curator, educator, and juror of art who has worked in numerous capacities at the Triton Museum of Art since 1965 and is presently the Executive Director and Senior Curator. He is an Associate Faculty Instructor of Art at Mission College in Santa Clara (1986 to present) where he has taught drawing, design, color, life drawing, museum and gallery studies, airbrush painting and oil, acrylic and watercolor painting. He also teaches at Pacific Art League in Palo Alto, University of California at Berkeley extension program, and De Anza College.
Rivera will share his knowledge of what the juror looks for in a work in a typical jurying scenario. He will also share what other colleagues have shared with him during team jurying and what he has heard from other jurors as well. There are plethora of myths, legends, and other explanations when the discussion of a juried competition comes up, especially the word "subjective."
Artists can bring two pieces of art work as if entering a juried competition - Rivera will share his thoughts and verbalize why he would select one work over the other.
