About the Jurors:

Julia Fox

She received a BA in both art history and studio art from SUNY Albany May 2014. She is currently living in Philadelphia, PA and has recently shown her work in the Crane Arts Building in Philadelphia, PA, the Gallery at Mayfair in Allentown, PA, and Artworks Gallery in Trenton, NJ.

Her work looks to capture unique architectural qualities of buildings in post-industrial cities in which she has lived by incorporating found materials into painted and often sculptural works.

Kim Jackson

She graduated Pennsylvania College of Art and Design in 2011 with her BFA . She has shown her artwork in galleries such as, The Mural Arts Center, RAW artists of Philadelphia and Imperfect Gallery. She has worked with young children teaching art since the age of 16 and currently works with Taller Puertorriqueno and Historic Rittenhousetown as a visual arts instructor and resident artist.
Her natural and organic style stems from many environmental inspirations such as caves, barnacles, fungi and the ocean. Kim pushes herself to learn the science behind the natural objects she is depicting in her artwork, so she can educate others and encourage environmental preservation and recycling.
Carlee Myers
She received a BFA in Curatorial Studies and Fine Art from Moore College of Art & Design. She is currently living in Philadelphia, PA and has recently shown her work at the Crane Arts Building in Philadelphia, PA, Orchard Artworks in Bryn Athyn, PA, the URBN Center in Philadelphia, PA and East End Salon in Philadelphia, PA.

Her artwork focuses on printmaking as a Way or Do. Approaching printmaking as a Do is a significant part of her process as it is allows her to meditate why and how she relates to the spiritual—a term she uses to describe a divine order, universal energy, god, etc.—through nature. As she uses art-making as a medicinal and meditative practice, much of her work comments on the importance of process.
