The Annual Honors Show

  • Jean Wagner Troemel Best in Show Award Winner: "Lore of Stones Diptych #1: Black Stones and Wishing Stones", fiber by Liz Canali

Online May 1-24, 2020 ∙ In-gallery June 5-28, 2020

The St. Augustine Art Association presents the Annual Honors Show!

Due to all of the sudden changes and cancellations happening from the covid-19 virus, the art world has had to adjust. Each month the Art Association puts on a new exhibit in the gallery, but with all of the social distancing and quarantining happening, we’ve gone digital.

We want to say a special thank you to our award sponsors who enable us to continue presenting our artists with awards: 97Park Residential & Commercial Real Estate, Alice Alger, and the Jean Wagner Troemel Award Fund.

All of the artwork is for sale unless labeled NFS. Art sales benefit the artists, programs of the St. Augustine Art Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and they bring joy to the buyer!

ART SALES: To purchase a piece of art online, click the “BUY” link after the price and pay through PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account, there is an option to “pay with credit card”). Artwork purchased online may either be picked up at the St. Augustine Art Association (22 Marine Street) or shipped to the buyer (shipping to be paid by the buyer). Please contact STAAA to arrange: info@staaa.org or (904) 824-2310.

Judge’s Statement

During such a difficult time, art exhibitions have gone online. And though disconnected from the purpose of an art exhibit, in some ways this new public access is a positive change: no need to find parking, extra time to ourselves and other needs are presently not a deterrent from seeing good art. But of course, judging art online and perceiving its strength is dependent on a strong image or images. Take that away and all you are left with is a grid of foggy pixels.

Thankfully, the St. Augustine Art Association’s Honors Show was easy to judge due to a group of diverse and talented artists. Collectively the work submitted was bold, very diverse and highly crafted. Judging it solely online however, did remove the immediate response to the physicality of the work through a sense of scale and detail. But, with a little patience and time spent, the work revealed itself. Many of the awards presented went to artists whose work exhibited great vision, design, unique material use and skilled craftsmanship. I yearn to see many of these pieces in person to gain a more intimate response, perhaps in June, when this exhibition may be displayed in the gallery, we can all come together to view this spectacular artwork, presented in real time with real people.
