Opus 2021 Awards!

By October 12, 2021October 13th, 2021Exhibitions

Thank you to all applicants and participants of Opus 2021, TVAA’s biggest and annual “best of” juried show at the Riverside Hotel.

The juror, Sue Tyler, is primarily a painter (watercolor and  acrylics), lover of the West and retired art educator.  Sue hails from Driggs, ID.   Her art and more of her bio can be viewed at suetyler.com.

Sue’s priorities for selecting the included work and giving the awards relied on her perception of good design, good craftsmanship, artist’s intent and “wow” factor.  She worked hard to see the art not just from a painter’s eye and consider diversity of media.  The works selected for the show were based on the digital images submitted.  Sue confessed to having a big challenge picking the final awards based on in-person viewing at the Riverside, as it is a good looking group of work.  Thank you, Sue!

Please come see the show, on view through Dec 31st, 2021.
