Juror: Jordan Griska

Juror's comment: “I would like to thank all of the artists who are exhibiting in the 2017 LCAA annual show. It was an honor to be involved in the show. The participants are all talented artists and it was very hard to choose the winners of the different categories. There is a great level of passion and skill displayed in the works. This show reflects the importance of organizations such as the LCAA and their support for the arts!”

Jordan Griska, a Brooklyn based sculptor, moved from Philadelphia in 2012. He received a BFA from the University of Pennsylvania and a Certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Jordan received the Cresson Scholarship and Governor's Award while at PAFA.
