Jurors for 2024:

Marie Craig co-founded Fountain Street, a contemporary art gallery in Boston’s SoWa arts district, and was its director from 2011-2024. In her role as gallerist, Marie curated numerous exhibitions and juried several international calls for art.

An artist herself, Marie photographs places and things that have a hidden, forgotten beauty within them. Working primarily with cyanotype, an early lens-less photographic process, she uses digital negatives and plant material to create images that she then embellishes using line and color. Her work has been shown in galleries and museums throughout New England, has received a number of awards and is included in collections throughout the US, Europe and Australia.

 

Originally coming from Washington state’s watery world of Puget sound, Keri Straka has always been interested in the connection between body and land. Tidepools nestled into eroded sandstone rock along Bellingham Bay provided endless hours of curiosity and fascination stemming from observing a micro world of small dramas. This set up a lifelong passion for quiet witnessing of how internal spaces “speak” through the language of subtle activity. Having earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics at Western Washington University in ceramics, she then moved to Boston to complete a Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics at Massachusetts College of Art in 2003. Keri is active in the studio as a sculptor employing both hard and soft materials and is a member of the Boston Sculptors Gallery.

 

Noelle Fournier received a B.A. in Fine Arts from St. Lawrence University and a M.Ed. from Lesley University. In addition to Danforth, she has been on the faculty at the De Cordova Sculpture Park and Museum, the Fitchburg Art Museum, and the Umbrella Community Arts Center in Concord. She was selected as Artist-in-Residence for a yearlong study of sculpture, and has also designed and presented a series of professional development seminars on sculpture and art education. Since 2016, Noelle has overseen the relocation of the school, as well as the integration of Danforth with Framingham State University. Noelle enjoys creating art, but her primary vocation is in providing exceptional art classes for all ages.
