Gualala Arts is pleased and honored to have Consuelo Jiménez Underwood, Bob Nugent, and John LeBaron as this year's judges for the fine art exhibit competition.

Consuelo Jiménez Underwood

Consuelo Jiménez Underwood is an artist and teacher at San Jose State University. Underwood raises two important issues that have surfaced in textiles recently - the contemporary interest in textiles as an expressive art form and the legacy of textiles as a craft traditionally practiced by women.

Bob Nugent Professor Bob Nugent is curator of the Imagery Estate Winery Artists Program and Gallery and professor at Sonoma State University, teaching painting (oil and acrylic) and printmaking. Since 1971, he has participated in over 80 solo exhibitions, and his commissions form part of numerous private and public collections.

Nugent's work has been collected by major museums, among them, the Oakland Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

John LeBaron John LeBaron was a photographer for the Santa Rosa Press Democrat for 20 years from 1948-1968. He served on the faculty of Santa Rosa Junior College, teaching photography for 35 years before retiring in 1997. Retirement has not slowed him down. He is still taking pictures saying that, "photography for me is an ongoing learning process, there are so many things to be photographed, and so many different ways to do it!"
