This year’s show was juried by Claude Elliott, arts consultant and independent curator. Artists from the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia were invited to submit original hanging work in any medium, to be considered. Response from the call was significant, with 157 artists submitting over 700 pieces. Elliott selected 118 pieces for the show, all from different artists.

Claude Elliott began his career as Assistant Curator at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Prints, Drawings and Photographs.  He interned at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Library of Congress, and the National Gallery of Art. He served six years as Deputy Director of Step Afrika! Prior to moving to Washington, DC he was a Program Officer with the Rhode Island Foundation where he managed a fund for the creation of new works and fellowships for visual artists, writers, and music composers.  He is a recipient of a DCCAH Arts and Humanities Fellowship, a Curatorial Grant, Humanities DC Vision Grant and DC Oral History Collaborative Grant.  His curatorial interests are creative ideas that are purposeful, mastery of technique, and the intersection of art, history and culture as a bridge for individual reflection and community dialogue. Elliott has a Master of Arts in Art History from the University of Mississippi, Master of Human Services Management, Brandeis University and Master of Social Work, Clark Atlanta University.  He has served on review panels for Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County, NEA Challenge America, DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and Rhode Island Council for the Arts.
