Juror of Selection and Awards

Bonese Collins Turner is an artist, designer, and educator who deals primarily with drawing, painting and printmaking. Her works have been exhibited in the White House, and hang in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution, among many others. She has served as a juror of numerous national exhibitions. She is featured in Who’s Who in the West, Who’s Who in American Art, Who’s Who in American Women, the California Art Review and many other publications. Recently she was included in the new book 10 Artists of the West Coast.

Juror’s Statement

“It is always fun to look at visual images if they are created by inventive, devoted artists. It was a pleasure to view the work presented by the collage artists here. There were individual voices shown in this grouping, personal visions shared, humor slyly included, mystery presented; the difficulty was in selecting a cohesive but representative group.

Usually the juror is given too few places for display by the venue. Online exhibits can solve that problem. This was a humbling task to show a tempting view of the Collage Artists' exciting variety and expertise. One can only hope to see these in person in the future. And there are many more to be seen from this group!” – Bonese Collins Turner
