Judge: Gwen Mehler

Gwen grew up in New Jersey and always had an interest in art. She took private lessons her entire youth that focused on clay, pencil, and painting, before attending Florida State University and moving to Jacksonville, Florida. Her works, some of which are murals, can be found on display in the Clay County Headquarters Library, local elementary schools, and the like.

Judge’s Statement

It was an honor and great pleasure to judge the STAAA Fall Members Show. The artwork submitted by the members was exceptional and it was not easy to narrow down the work. I wish all of the work could have received awards, but unfortunately there was some paring down to do. It was not an easy task!

While composition, brush work, and color are very important, I also was looking for a strong intent and unique voice. Those are the ones that make me want to cross a room and linger.

While all the submissions I selected for awards met the aforementioned fundamental criteria, they also touched my art spirit in various ways. Some evoked a sense of this past years challenges, some put a delighted smile on my face, and others were simply a soft and beautiful place for my eyes to land.

I congratulate the winners but also want to thank each and every artist for sharing their beautiful work with us! Congratulations to everybody on a job well done!
