Juror Monica Hicks


I choose this as the winner for the theme Self Discovery because of the literal and figurative journey for the artist and the viewer. Besides its obvious technical skills to recreate the texture of gravel/sand upon a two dimensional surface, and juxtaposed slightly with the flatness of the homes in the distance, I find myself wondering what level of self discovery this artist is a part of. I suspect three options. The artist has discovered this site, and the trail of those who too have found it; the artist is leaving the site or; the artist has returned to the site, leaving herself a trail to do so.


Self discovery is such a privilege in a stressful world. I enjoy this work because of the distance it places between the viewer and the site of interest, perhaps to the artist. It allows an anonymity, a questioning, but a correlation because of the clear trail.


The mute colors speak to depth and solidarity, just as self discovery can be at times.  Excellent piece. Thank you for sharing.

Throughout grammar school and high school I designed logos and charts promoting
school activities and events.

I always took art classes, locally and the at the Art Institute.
After several years of evening and Saturday classes at S.A.I.C., when in my mid 20ʼs,
Mr. Keane, a faculty member asked when I was going to get my degree. I replied that I
had never thought of applying. I did and received my B.F.A.. I then went on to familiarize
myself with the Chicago art scene. I had my first show at the Illinois Arts Council in

I joined Artemisia in 1978 and received my M.F.A. the following year. During this
time I became acquainted with many artists, teachers and friends, and worked on
promoting my art.

I visited and had shows in Italy and Slovenia and in many of the U.S.
states. Throughout the years I have shown in galleries and museums in the midwest.

I have been invited to jury shows and give lectures on my work. I have declined at times
since I find speaking in large auditorium spaces difficult. I prefer smaller spaces and
more intimate groups.

I find keeping up with the latest technology and global art
resources most challenging. I like to know what is happening, though I realize that I
must limit what I do to what I know best.

At present I spend most of my time painting,
though the Reliquary series was a change, but something that I felt compelled to do. I
keep informed, travel extensively and have been visiting many of our National Parks as
an artist in resident. I plan to continue on this course since I find it very informative and
stimulating and often relaxing and fulfilling.
