Judgement Call

16mm by 12mm - Mosaic gold in sterling silver $225 USD Email to purchase One of the unusual things I've done in the past number of months is act as a juror for the Canadian Annual Mosaic Exhibition held this year in Edmonton, Alberta, my home town. I'd never been asked to be a juror before, so that was an honour, and being asked to judge a national show was also exciting.  I won't say it was easy, but it was enjoyable. There was work that spanned all levels and styles of mosaic making, and I was grateful that the organizers provided a comprensive scoring rubric. I admit wondered prior how this sort of thing would work; how would I score works that were in mosaic styles that aren't to my personal taste? How would I overcome bias for works that were from artists whose style I recognized or for work I just really personally liked ? Luckily, the score sheet solved that issue readily, because it wasn't about what I liked, but whether a mosaic embodied various merits.
