2018 Jury:
For the past couple of decades since Holly Curtis graduated from Western with the University Gold Medal in Visual Arts, she has remained engaged in London’s art community. Her knowledge and passion for visual art has led her to actively immerse herself in roles such as art critic, art educator, and studio practitioner. Throughout the past couple of decades, while Curtis has been head of Visual Arts at Saunders Secondary School, she has remained active at Museum London and currently holds the position of Chair of Acquisitions. 
Peter M. Flannery is an emerging curator, art historian, and writer. He is currently pursuing his Master of Arts in Art History and Visual Culture at the University of Guelph. Peter’s research interests centre on issues of LGBTQ2S+ identity, community, and the HIV/AIDS crisis as depicted through Toronto art and visual culture from the 1970s to the present day. A London area native, Peter is currently based in Guelph.

Cassandra Getty earned a BFA in studio Visual Arts from the University of Windsor, and an MA in the History of Art from the University of Victoria.
