About the Juror:

Mike Guyer: "I am an Artist and Educator living in Richmond, Virginia. Currently, I am the Department Chair for Fine Arts at Deep Run High School, and am working toward my MFA in painting from Virginia Commonwealth University. When I paint, I am just as interested in the physical history of the layers as I am in the history of art through the ages. Both play a pivotal role in what, and how, I create."
