JUROR:  Thora Jacobson
Thora Jacobson is the juror of our Fall Members Exhibition titled Connections. Thora has been uniquely influential in guiding the evolution of the Philadelphia art scene and continues to share her wealth of knowledge and passion with our community. She directed the Fleisher Art Memorial from 1983-2010, opening The Center for Works on Paper, expanding Fleisher’s program offerings, and overseeing improvements to the historic building. She then brought her talents to Philagrafika, an organization intent on increasing opportunities for working artists, particularly printmakers. Today, Thora helms the Philadelphia Art Alliance and continues to foster contemporary local artists while forging connections between art and the greater Philadelphia community.

In a recent interview regarding jurying, Thora stated “It is perilous to apply universal criteria to works of art made in a wide variety of media, but I do value work that is clear in its intent - whether representational, abstract or conceptual. By that, I don't mean that a work of art has to be obvious, but work that will stand on its own and hold my attention, with or without clever titles or didactic labels. I also respond to work that is distinctive, original, and well made.”

All work accepted work must remain for the duration of the exhibition and cannot be picked up early.
