Illustration West 52 Has Been Judged!
Our Illustration West 52 judging panel, Alina Chau, Kevin Chen, James Gurney, Iain McCaig, Bill Perkins, Will Terry, Will Weston, William Wray and Dean Yeagle have juried close to 1400 entries. They, along with Show Chair Santosh Oommen, had a tremendous challenge since the caliber of the work was so very high – which made the acceptance cutoff quite high as well. The feedback from the judges was overwhelmingly: great work!
The cutoff for this show was very high as well thereby making the number of entries accepted a little over 16% of the entries submitted. The Illustration West 52 website will launch this March in conjunction with the Illustration West 52 Art Exhibition to be held at the prestigious Center Stage Gallery (and official home of the Creative Talent Network, founded by Tina Price. We look forward to seeing you at the Opening Night on March 7th!
