Roehl took an innovative approach to her jurying process: she carefully read the artist’s statements and evaluated the work based largely on whether or not the artists were successful in communicating their intentions. Due to the fact that the symbolic content in abstraction is highly individual and the mysterious nature inherent in interpreting abstraction, the artists’ statements will be presented with the artwork, to aid in further understanding of aims of the artists.

Karen Roehl is a successful Denver artist who teaches basic and abstract painting at the Student Arts League. She is the chair of the Ice Cube Gallery, and has exhibited her work widely, including in the nationally acclaimed Coors Western Art Exhibition.
