Show Judges

Kirah Van Sickle, 2D Judge

Kirah is a lifelong artist and adventurer at heart. Her paintings and mixed media works are deeply personal expressions, inspired by memory, travel, myth and geology. Kirah is also a dynamic instructor, lecturer, coach and mentor, leading courses directed to both beginner and seasoned artists. She is an award-winning illustrator, graphic designer and studio artist, a certified Golden Artist-Educator, and active in community arts and focus on the preservation of cultural and natural resources. Kirah splits her time between her home on the Cape Fear Coast of NC, and Italy. You can find her teaching throughout the US and Europe.

Steve Kelly, 3D Judge

Steve Kelly b. 1971 is a potter and sculptor based in Wilmington, NC. He is a professor at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington and leads workshops in the US as well as abroad. His work can be seen at numerous American galleries, magazines and most recently in Surface Decoration for Ceramics a book on contemporary ceramic surface techniques. His functional forms range from humble utilitarian vessels to more complex abstract gallery work. His pottery and sculptures center around such questions as what objects and surfaces can tell us about who we are, how we relate to one another, and how we relate to our planet. Steve received his BFA from the University of Montana and MFA from Maine College of Art. Perhaps his greatest education, however, came from his apprenticeship with master potter Trew Bennet in the hills of Virginia. Where, in keeping with the ethos of traditional Asian and American ceramics, he spent countless hours creating vessels that both honor the humble nature of clay and transcend it.
