First signs of impending winter did not scare CoPA's members, artists and photo enthusiasts, who came out in force to celebrate the opening of CoPA's 3rd Annual Juried Show. Even though this year's juror, Paul Ha of St.Louis's Contemporary could not join us due to previous (certainly important!) art engagements, he was kind enough to send us a video tape with his thoughts on the jurying process and photography he selected. It's a great addition to the show that helps to see the work included in the exhibition from a new, fresh perspective.
We were fortunate too, that all the award winners were able to join us: Mary Farmilant of Chicago, IL, awarded "The Best in Show," John Koeppen of Racine, WI and Chris Norris of Madison, WI, who both received "Honorable Mentions," and Kristin Keshena, enthusiastically selected to receive "Viewers' Choice Award." Thank you all for coming - it was a wonderful night!
