Jessica Kirklin was the Judge for this show. Below is what she said about the show:

"I was certainly honored and challenged to juror such an impressive show.  Teachers, you should be congratulated for guiding the students with such insight, wisdom and dedication, and students, each and every one of you should be congratulated on having skillfully, and artfully, met their challenges.
I spent hours studying this show. I made five passes of viewing the whole show. So what did I look for? We are going take for granted the fact that your teachers have vetted every piece, so we know that each piece meets the requirements for good elements and principles of design. So what I looked for was something shown in either a bold or unique way. These were pieces that caught my eye over and over again.

Another trait that I looked for was work that was rendered or shot in such a way that it was able to describe the essence of its subject in 2D form. The artwork expressed a clear message, such as loneliness, or humor, a personality or a moment in time. A great many of you were able to accomplish this.  Sadly, I was only able to award a small percentage. Please do not be discouraged if you did not place. I am but one person and this is but one show. Instead, please be encouraged to continually explore your creativity and develop your talents.

Lastly, I would like to take a moment to let the seniors know that they have amazing senior portfolios and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them. Your body of work shows cohesion and a consistency of talent. I wish all of you the best of luck and I can’t wait to see your work somewhere out in the world very soon."

Best regards,
Jessica Kirklin
