About the Juror

Denene Taliaferro received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia with studio emphasis in fibers and photography. Her extensive knowledge of 2- and 3-dimensional visual arts has assured her selection as a juror and exhibit coordinator at both local and national levels. Her recent projects include coordinating and installing artwork for the National Watercolor Society's Traveling Exhibit in the Sky Gallery at the Springfield-Branson Regional Airport, and "Colors of Cambodia," an international fundraising endeavor held in the Creamery Gallery at the Springfield Regional Arts Council for the benefit of an art school located in the Siem Reap area of Cambodia.

Ms. Taliaferro broadens her artistic experiences by both teaching and participating in a wide variety of arts-related workshops, classes, and demonstrations for children and adults. A Springfield native with deep roots in the Ozarks, she is an active member of the local arts community, volunteering her time as a co-chair for the Art in the Park Fine Art and Contemporary Craft Show & Sale, in addition to various other events and activities for the Springfield Regional Arts Council.
