WaterWorks Art Museum Juried Exhibition Winners

WaterWorks Art Museum (WAM) in Miles City, Montana, is proud to announce the award winners of this year's Juried Exhibit currently showing in the gallery. Jerry Cornelia, the juror for this event, explained that it was difficult to choose winners, noting that every piece juried into this exhibition was exceptional. Cornelia deliberated for a long time and studied each piece thoroughly. When asked what he looks for when choosing his winners, he explained that he looks for the following when determining his choices: composition, technique, and style. Do the colors compliment each other? Is there a particular boldness about the piece.? Does the art bring forth an emotion that draws you in and keeps you there? Is the piece unique like nothing you have experienced before?

Best of Show: Corinne McAuley – (glass beads) “Fall Fire.”
