Juror – Our juror, Chrisanne Moats, has been the Executive Director at the Escondido Art Partnership since 2015, having prior been an exhibiting artist since 2006, then a volunteer events coordinator, and eventually Gallery Manager between 2011 – 2015. She has served the community of San Diego organizing arts events and curating exhibitions for over 25 years. She is a selftaught artist, poet, filmmaker and performing artist.
