Awards Juror: 

Kathy F. Montgomery, FASID, began working in the field of art consulting and advising following an extensive career in corporate interior design. An early life passion for “making” art was redirected while in college toward interior design, an artistic profession with a practical balance. Planning interior environments, especially those for healthcare and corporate clients, highlighted the importance of art in all spaces.

While pursuing an advanced degree in environmental design, Kathy began collecting research that supported the connection between interior design and health and well-being. The significant value that the introduction of art contributed was reinforced both for public and private spaces. The presence of art where we humans work, live, heal, play, learn and worship contributes to the internal being in all of us.

Kathy has worked with clients on projects that include art collection maintenance, acquisition, and planning. She has worked to design, and plan major art exhibits. She donates time and expertise to non-profit community arts organizations to assist with marketing, development and collection acquisitions.

Kathy has served as the National President of the American Society of Interior Designers, and volunteers as a Board member for Art for the Mountain Community in Evergreen, and at Evergreen Fine Art for “Weekend in the West”. She serves as volunteer coordinator for the Coors Western Art Show and Sale. She was named a Fellow of the American Society of Interior Designers, and has achieved the LEED AP designation for “green design practices”.

Awards will be presented during the Opening Reception, Friday, September 26th, 2014 5 to 8 pm. 
Best of Show: $500
