JUROR & AWARDS JUDGE, CASEY KLAHN, BIOGRAPHYSeeking a balance of color and form, and a unity of ideas.
Casey Klahn is an American artist who shows you new colors. His abstracted style and use of color embrace the expression of his personal ideas. Klahn has said, "I hope for you that my painting feels like nine months of rain, but with hope for tomorrow."
Casey Klahn was born in 1958 in Aberdeen, Washington and raised in Hoquiam, Washington.
Klahn works in pastel, mixed media, charcoal, and graphite. He teaches art workshops internationally and is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and a member of the Master's Circle of the International Association of Pastel Societies.JURORS COMMENTS:Showing your work is critical to your life as an artist. Congratulations for submitting your art to be juried; it is a courageous move! I have been rejected or accepted enough times to know the ups and downs; please keep sticking your neck out. It is worth it.
My objectives as a juror are to select works that make the leap from technique to expression. How does this artwork make me feel? Does it send a message without extraneous bits and bravado? Does it have good unity (which is what I just described)? Does everything work (form in the greater sense)?
Lastly, I look at technical merit. I look at abstract quality: what elements are being used and do they fit the artist's intent? I am unconcerned with subjects or styles; realism or abstraction are the same weight for me in choosing. Frankly, in my experiences instructing artists, I am often very pleased by the work of beginners, because you can see the honesty. Here in this exhibition I sincerely hope everyone gets a fair opportunity to exhibit, and am trying my best to see that happen.SCHEDULE OF EVENTS: Registration Opens: January 10, 2020Entry Deadline: Midnight, March 15, 2020.
