Juror for the show is  Diana Kerr. Diana has over 45 years of art experience in curation, administration, and sales.  In her earlier years, she was in charge of corporate art sales at a gallery in Boston and was manager of Baridoff’s contemporary gallery in Portland, Maine. More recently, Diana was curator and art consultant at the Firehouse Gallery in Damariscotta and was Assistant Director/Director of Sales at Gleason Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor. During all this time, Diana was creating her own work, “Diana Kerr Design.” She is now co-owner /co-manager of Kerr+Jones Fine Art and Craft Gallery in East Boothbay.
