    On Saturday, March 3, Visual Arts Alliance (VAA) offers members and guests a rare insight into a juror’s selection process for art competitions with a free discussion by two prominent figures in the Houston art world: Catherine D. Anspon, Executive Editor at Paper City Magazine; and Dr. Cindy Lisica, owner and director of Cindy Lisica Gallery. The free presentation begins at 10:00 a.m. at the Montrose Center, 401 Branard Street, Room 112, Houston, 77006.

    The two speakers, both of whom have been jurors for VAA, will discuss their selection processes when judging a competition. Previously submitted works will be projected for the audience, and panelists will discuss the selection/elimination process applied to each work. Artists will discover the whys and hows of selection from a juror’s point of view, including the constants of technique and presentation as well as the unique personal biases of jurors.
