Jurors Michelle Dunn Marsh and Todd Johnson were equally impressed by the diversity of subject matter as well as the quality of technique apparent among this year’s cohort of artists.

 ”This jurying opportunity gave me a sense of what photographers in the Pacific Northwest are approaching, and the style, vision, and methodologies they choose to convey their intentions. While, not surprisingly, there were many submissions reflecting the landscape, I was pleased to see many portfolios reflecting social conditions. I loved seeing that ideas as simple as old growth trees or a bench near a lake can result in poignant, compelling visual statements.” – Michelle Dunn Marsh

“What an honor to view so many outstanding portfolios from the Pacific Northwest. The level of dedication to a diverse range of subjects and deep commitment to ones craft in photography is impressive. The Photography Viewing Drawers Program at Blue Sky Gallery is a treasure in our community. Thank you for the opportunity to experience the complexity and uniqueness of the many visions of contemporary photography of our visually rich region.” – Todd Johnson
