Goran Fazil, Assistant Professor of Studio Art, at College of Western Idaho (CWI), along with students, judged the juried fine art show during the 33rd Annual Nampa Festival of the Arts Aug. 12 at Lakeview Park in Nampa.
"It has been our privilege to be jurors for the Nampa Festival of Arts for many years now,” said Fazil. “It is a valuable experience for the students because it gives them an opportunity to carry the discussions we have in the classroom into the community.”
Fazil added, during the selection process they discuss the form and content of each of the pieces that are part of the festival. They are looking for originality of the art during the selection of the winners. The students judge a variety of works including, paintings, pottery, metalwork, drawings, and sculptures.
The Nampa Festival of the Arts highlights on their website the event attracts more than 18,000 visitors from around the Treasure Valley.
