This year’s judge is Jason Shiver. Sue Allen, a local artist and long time member of BLFA said, “Jason Shiver is a well known artist who lives in our community and brings a diverse artistic background to this task. He is a visual artist and a sculptor. Jason works in many media which we see as an asset for judging the various works in our show.”

“Each year BLFA and Center Place reach out to the community by sharing the very best art being produced in our area. It is an open show so anyone may submit work to be juried into the exhibition. We always hope artists from other counties and art organizations will participate,” said Allen.
