Judges' note:   While I was certainly impressed with the overall work, some of the students need to
review their notes.  Some basic flaws should have been avoided in the compositions. 
Some needed better matting (more width, or less) and frames (same, or less distracting),
while others needed a better system for hanging the art, ie wires.

Overall, the show was highly rated by customers, and some interest in purchasing was expressed.
