This Year's Jurors

Sarah E. LaBarre

Sarah Elizabeth LaBarre is a fiber artist and curator. She believes that art has the capability of transforming lives and is especially interested in points of connection between artists and the communities they live in. She holds an MFA in fibers from Colorado State University, a post-baccalaureate in fibers from Oregon College of Art and Craft, and a BFA in ceramics from the University of Arts in Philadelphia. Among other artist accomplishments, Sarah’s work is in the permanent collection of the Denver Art Museum.

Mario Zoots

Employing modes of appropriation and collage, Mario Zoots reimagines and questions the practices and belief systems that shape our world. While his earlier work focused on consumerism, pop, and American culture, Zoots’ recent practice includes abstract, sculptural and handmade elements, from indiscernible sources, expanding definitions of the collage technique.

Mario Zoots (American, b.1981) lives and works in Denver. He holds an MFA from the University of Denver and a BFA from the Metropolitan State University of Denver. Zoots works in various media, including painting, collage, sculpture, and video. Heavily influenced by his past life as a graffiti vandal, the artist's works are often intentionally raw and defaced.
