Juror's Statement

In the seemingly endless bright blue skies of California, a cloud is a surprise. I stop sometimes when I see one and marvel at it and wonder how it got here. This, from someone who grew up in upstate New York in a place where lake effect snow is a given and no one asks what a Nor’easter is. I’m also a person who lived in a place where the ocean froze, OK, more than one place where the ocean froze, one of those places being northern Maine where the fog was more opaque than the fog that comes tearing over the hills of San Francisco in June. All this is to say that when I was jurying this landscape show, I found myself drawn to clearing summer storms, wandering clouds, frozen vistas, trees broken by a sideways snowy wind, all the drama of weather that twenty years in the West has withheld from me. But the West also brought another kind of drama, a landscape with towering mountains, jagged cliffs, blazing deserts, scorched earth, and endless skies. Perhaps my selections for this show are a merging of my past and my present, my nostalgia for the East and its brutal winters and wet, humid summers, and my love for the West with its grand places.

I had a lot of difficulty whittling down my gallery selections to just 40 and the online annex gallery to just 50. Really, I felt strongly about both sets of images, and in my dreams, there would be a space large enough to exhibit all of them and I could be taken on a journey from the most gritty industrial landscapes to the most sublime natural landscapes. Selecting just two images for awards was also a challenge. There were a handful of artists who submitted multiple images or bodies of work that I would have liked to include in their entirety. This not being possible, I award two of these artists the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award respectively. One, Jim Ferguson, for his humorous and unique way of looking at the land, the other, Susan Scott, for the silence that is anything but quiet in her landscapes. I hadn’t seen either of these artist’s images before and these were exciting discoveries for me.

Congratulations to all the artists. It’s a phenomenal show with many pictures that I wish I’d taken myself! Keep letting the land call to you, especially in this unprecedented time. Now would be a great time for a John Muir quote, but perhaps a walk in the woods will suffice.

     — Ann Jastrab
