Juror Jessica Fowler is the Creative Director at Artwork Network in Denver, CO. She has a BA in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Colorado, where she graduated Portfolio Par Excellence (Best Portfolio). Although she has worked in many artistic mediums, her media of choice is digital, mostly for the endless supply of free materials and the gratifying "undo" button. Among her accomplishments is a feature in Lucky Magazine's Gift Guide for Art Snobs, where the funky digital painting of her cat stole the show. Her best friend is a Cockerspaniel/Shih Tzu mix named Isabelle, who was featured in a dog food commercial, but has retired from the spotlight to enjoy her pastime of barking at neighborhood children on skateboards.

Amy Norton is the owner of The Creative Angle Marketing and Communications where she has worked promoting artists, galleries and other small businesses for over 10 years. After receiving her BA from CU Boulder she earned an Associate Degree in Photography from the Art Institute of Colorado where she received an Award of Excellence for her Commercial Architectural Photography Portfolio. She recently curated the Anti-Defamation League's 2016 Art Exhibit and Silent Auction Fundraiser. Amy has lived-with and looked after a gamut of dogs breeds that have served as wonderful work companions including a pair of St. Bernards (Whiskey and Macallen), a two-pack of Pugs (Franklin and Maya), as well as her current roommate and work buddy, a 2-year old Cava-poo named Charlie.

Niza Knoll’s dog friends frequented her namesake gallery during their lifetime’s, with the most recent being Max who’s likeness is featured on the exhibit promotions.
