About the Juror:"I have written for STYLE over a year now as a art critic, but have also had the opporunity to create art in various mediums. My sculpture "Tomorrow Stood Just Outside the Circle From Where the Light Did Shine" was shown at 1708 Gallery's Inlight Show 2009. I am also the producer, writer, and director of an independent, surrealist theatre group known as "PunkSinatra" as well as an active member of All the Saints Theater, who put on the Richmond Halloween Parade in Oregon Hill. I have written for RVA magazine, BRICK weekly, been a radio reporter for WRIR, and published essays in art catalogues.
With the writing program, the Richmond Young Writers, I teach a class in Surrealism. As a program leader for Art 180 I have helped develop three projects over the past semesters. And in the evenings I teach composition courses at J. Sargeant Reynolds."
