The juror for the show was Mark Karelson, co-owner, Mason Murer Gallery, in Atlanta, GA. “Mark is known in the domestic and European art communities for his ability to showcase many art forms, including photography, and he works tirelessly to give back to the communities where he enjoys a presence.
