Meet Our Jurors

Karen Goetzinger

Karen Goetzinger is a visual artist who after living in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and New York, resides in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Through the use of mixed media such as acrylic, ink, graphite and oil pastel, she expressively marks the imprint of time and place on individual memory. Each large scale painting is intentionally without figurative elements allowing each viewer to become the human element, in solitary interaction with the abstract landscape and their own narratives.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion Design with an emphasis in Fine Arts from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her work is exhibited by public and commercial galleries throughout North America, and has been shown in exhibition spaces in China and Australia. It hangs in both private and corporate collections internationally. Karen’s work has been funded by both the Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts.

Karen has taught at the Ottawa School of Art and by invitation in Australia and New Zealand. She was appointed to the Ottawa 2017 Arts, Culture, and Heritage Investment Program Steering Committee and was unanimously elected to the Arts Network Ottawa Board of Directors in 2013, serving two consecutive three-year terms.


Mike Taylor

Mike Taylor – As an arts programmer with the City of Ottawa’s Community Galleries (out of Shenkman Arts Centre since 2009), Mike Taylor has worked with hundreds of artists in over 350 art exhibitions and events since 2005. When time allows, multiple forms of photography keep him challenged creatively.


Violeta Borisonik was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has a degree in Architecture from the University of Buenos Aires and she has also studied at the National School of Fine Arts. She moved to Canada in 1989 obtaining a degree in Visual Arts from the Ottawa School of Art in 1992. Violeta currently works in her studio at home. She is exploring the urban landscape of the big cities. Her compositions are read through texture, collage with paper, metal, fibres and found objects enhancing the richness of her works. Her latest paintings are inscribed into the abstract geometric style. Several of her works are in private collections across Canada. 

Violeta is represented by Orange Art Gallery and Studio 87 in Perth.
