JURORS:

Isabel Samaras- Artist, Pop-Surrealism Icon
Isabel is a painter who creates works in a classical vein combined with pop-cultural mash-ups. Witty and incisive, these works deal with love, longing, and the human compulsion to make everything come out just so.

Janet Webb- Designer, Curator, Art Maven
Janet has been a driving force in the Taos art scene for decades. Her latest curatorial adventure, “Women and Their Work” at the Harwood Museum of Art, was a in-depth survey of the female artists who have graced Taos with their creative genius.

Greg Moon – Artist, Curator, Owner of Greg Moon Art

Greg has worked in the commercial gallery scene for 36 years, 28 of those years in Taos and Santa Fe. His space focuses on works of the contemporary vein with an emphasis on fine art in the “old school” mediums of painting, photography, printmaking, mixed media, sculpture, and assemblage. His annual Lowbrow shows led to his co-curating “Orale’: Kings and Queens of Cool” at Taos’ Harwood Museum of Art. The show was a in-depth survey of Lowbrow and Pop-Surrealist artists in the U.S.
