EXHIBITION JUDGING

Judges this year will be invited incognito to view all artist works submitted on CaFÉ. We have selected three very distinguished judges from the Greater Cincinnati area who will jury each individual piece of art. When their votes are tabulated, the top artists will be accepted. After the Show is hung, the same judges will independently view the Show and submit their votes for the top five works, and their previous scores will be factored in to determine the winners.
