Juror James Gurney commented: “Here's a really fine characterization of a spunky imaginative girl. The polka dot theme running through the costume, the slightly mussed up hair, the hands on the hips, and the expression of her mouth, all make her look like she could take on anything. Anni Matsick has done a great job of simplifying the background and the overall color palette to make a statement.” The show is in Richeson Art Gallery, Kimberly WI through March 8, 2014 and may be viewed online at:
