2023 Judges

Linda Fantuzzo, a contemporary painter living and working in Charleston, SC, will select the winning art entries in grades 1-5. She studied at the Museum School in Philadelphia, The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and graduated in 1973. Fantuzzo worked non-objectively in various media for over ten years, then chose to return to painting representationally. She has been represented by galleries in the Charleston area since the 1970s, and has had several solo museum exhibitions in SC and GA. Her paintings are represented in numerous public and private collections including the Gibbes Museum of Art, Greenville County Museum of Art, Morris Museum of Art, and the SC Arts Commission Collection.

Amiri Geuka Farris, a contemporary artist whose wide range of work encompasses painting, drawing, video, performance art, and installation, will serve as judge for grades 6-12. Farris’ art is full of intimate personal experiences and examines issues such as diaspora, culture, memory, and perception. His work has been featured in more than 50 solo and juried exhibitions worldwide, including Washington, D.C. When asked about his inspiration, Farris says, “I like to see artwork that will take one medium and use it to do something else. Artwork that is bold, expressive, and completely different.” A SCAD alumnus and foundation studies professor, Farris lives and works in Bluffton, SC.
