Juror:  Dr. Selena Nawrocki, Professor of Art, Valdosta State University. 

Dr. Nawrocki recieved her BFA at the Mississippi University for Women, and her MFA from the University of Memphis.  Her PhD in Technology/Education was earned at University of Memphis.

Since becoming a fulltime faculty in the Art Department of Valdosta State University, she earned the College Excellance in Teaching Award, and multiple faculty research grants to develop digital art in complex shaped formats.  She has participated in over 100 exhibitions internationally and nationally.  Speaking about her work, she says:

“Traditional boundaries of applied arts have been shattered, with my axonometric drawings and computer renderings yielding a bas-relief sculptural quality associated with the fine arts media.The effect I am seeking is a mechanized, industrial principle focus in developing a machine-age quality enhanced with shadows and light.”
