This is a juried show. 

JUROR: Ron Beahn, OWS, WP

What a wonderful showing of guests we had Saturday, April 6th at the Hudson Fine Art and Framing Company in Hudson. This was a celebration of our 2024 Mid-Winter “Spring” Members show where we had 25 members representing the Hudson Society of Artists with 46 beautiful pieces of artwork expertly installed around the gallery. The numbers on each piece allow the public to choose their favorite piece for the People’s Choice award during the show ending on April 27th.

 

After perusing the gallery several times during the jurying process, our juror, Ron Beahn chose five award winners and then graciously made comments for each piece he chose to let us know what he was thinking while making these decisions.

 

The following list with photos shows the winners with the various comments which are posted on each piece so everyone can see them.

 

BEST OF SHOW: “Just Pray” Pencil and charcoal by Jamaal Ellis

“I found myself returning to this piece many times during the jury process.  It’s done with a sensitive handling of the medium and very well done.”  Ron Beahn, Juror
