Trisha Hassler has reviewed the submissions and selected pieces for the SDA Dancing Surfaces Show. Speaking for the committee, I was happy to have her make the selection because there were so many wonderful submissions. The show promises to be one filled with variety and will showcase the talent in Washington State.
“Tree Bones” by Meegan McKiernan
She has also selected her choice for the Juror’s award. Her choice is “Tree Bones” by Meegan McKiernan! Congratulations Meegan! About the piece Trisha said “This piece has a quiet resonance that really appeals to me. I find the soft voice compelling and the sophisticated sense of design makes it an interesting contrast of subject and materials.” Meegan will receive a $200 award. We are looking forward to seeing the piece in person!
About the submissions in general, Trisha had this to say—
“Spending time with these works of art was a real treat for me. The balance of new techniques with traditional materials as well as the attention to craftsmanship presented a wide variety of work to choose from. The expansive definition of surface design allows for many expressions and interpretations of the mediums and I was excited to see so many different creative ideas.”
