This Year’s Judge – Sally Myers 

We are extremely pleased that Sally Myers of Winchester, VA has accepted to be our judge.

Sally Myers’ artwork offers a respectful and joyous view of nature. Without painting in every feather or leaf, she captures the hidden wonder and beauty found in nature, something that rings true.

Myers earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University and a Master of Fine Arts in Fibers at the University of Washington, Seattle. Later, she earned a Masters in Teaching Art and a Ph.D. at the University of Arizona, Tucson. She spent much of her career teaching in the Art Department at Ball State University.

Myers works in clay, paper, and steel has been shown in exhibitions across the United States. A few years ago, she designed a 3,000-pound steel sculpture placed in front of city hall in Muncie, Indiana. She designed and constructed an interactive tile mural, The Listening Tree, to help facilitate the testimony of abused children at the Child Advocacy Center in Indiana. She was invited to take part in the Rotating History Project III at Clermont Historical Farm in Berryville, Virginia, where she made a series of steel columns based on the history of the farm.
