Juror(s): Roberta Reb Allen
In her statement, Roberta Reb Allen shares her thoughts about the jury experience: "I approached jurying “The Child in You” with a great deal of curiosity and anticipation about what the varying responses to this theme would be. I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the jurying process very much and am only sorry that more works could not be included as there were so many aesthetically strong images.
“I tried to jury with no preconceived notions about form or content. In making the final selections I ended up using three criteria. First, I was looking for works which captured some aspect of a child’s experience without overly revealing the hand or thought processes of the adult artist. Secondly, I found myself looking for a diversity of responses in terms of media, subject matter and style. There were works which touched on the darker, more confusing and scary side of childhood as well as works which made me laugh outloud in delight. Finally, having participated in and viewed many Woman Made Gallery shows over the years, I was looking for works which would not readily fit into other themed shows sponsored by the Gallery.“I hope I have succeeded in putting together a show that appeals as much to the child in you as it did to the child in me.”
