Judging art competitions is about setting your personal preferences aside, in search of quality of execution coupled with special artistic expression. Three (3) judges concluded simultaneously about Best of Show at the Invitational Litchfield Park Gathering: Native American Fine Arts Festival in January 2017 (last night). The carving below was a total standout.
You could ask me who made it? I would have to answer truthfully, I still don’t know.
It isn’t about who you know, it’s about the work.
Don’t know the gender of the maker either.
The day after, today, I would like to know.
Should you attend the festival tomorrow Sunday, you can find out. It’s a free event from 10-4pm
