People’s Choice Award – Paul Adams
In 2018 we initiated an additional prize, the People’s Choice Award. We began collecting votes during Seattle’s First Thursday Artwalk, a popular monthly event. Visitors lingered and engaged with the artwork, casting 235 votes that included votes for every artist in the exhibition. The 2018 People’s Choice Award went to Paul Adams for his wet plate collodion tintypes.

About the Exhibition
The annual Gallery 110 Juried Exhibition showcases contemporary art chosen by a juror with ties to the artistic community of the Pacific Northwest. The juror selects work from submissions by artists around the world. Previous jurors include Scott Lawrimore (former curator at the Frye Art Museum), Maiza Hixson (Curator, Santa Barbara Museum of Art), and Catharina Manchanda (curator of modern and contemporary art, Seattle Art Museum).

In 2018, Gallery 110 was honored to have Sara Krajewski as juror. Krajewski is the Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Portland Museum of Art. Previously she was the director of the INOVA (Institute of Visual Arts) galleries at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Seattle locals will remember Ms. Krajewski as curator of the Henry Art Gallery, where she organized nearly 40 exhibitions of contemporary art and photography over eight years. In 2014, Krajewski was recognized as an emerging leader by the Leadership Institute of the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries.

We each barely glimpse each other.
Living – as I do – in a sliver of space, I rarely appreciate the stories drawn on the faces of the people around me, even on those within my own social circle. Stories abbreviated, exaggerated, or suppressed. My reality is based upon my personal experiences and upon those shared by the people within my tiny circle. See yourself in these portraits.
