Our Esteemed Jurors

The Juried Art Show at Phillips’ Mill is a juried show with new judges every year. This gives the show a fresh look and perspective each year, yet one that is always based in our local community. Our jurors are accomplished in their own right, often with an academic background. Some of our jurors have been curators and art historians as well. We are proud of the shows they design for us and invite you to join us in welcoming the esteemed jurors of the 93rd Juried Art Show at Phillips’ Mill.
