Art Saint Louis XXVII: The Exhibition was juried by Richard V. West. Mr. West is an art historian, curator, author and Director Emeritus of the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, WA. Over his career, he has curated exhibits that reveal his interest in both the fine arts and popular culture—exhibitions ranging from “Munich and American Realism in the Nineteenth Century” (1978) to “Children of the Yellow Kid: The Evolution of the American Comic Strip” (1998).

In recent years, West has concentrated on exhibitions, essays, and lectures highlighting the work of contemporary artists who are redefining the boundaries of representation, from Odd Nerdrum to Mark Ryden. West has also juried or co-juried national and regional exhibitions, including "Watercolor USA," "Art Maui," and "Expressions West," as well as serving as guest curator for the "Miami Art Fair." He is currently preparing a monograph on American painter and illustrator Rockwell Kent. West has served on the Professional Practices Committee of the College Art Association and the Ethics and Standards Committee of the Association of Art Museum Directors.

West to receive Awards of Excellence in recognition of their outstanding works in this exhibition: Jason Ackman, Jo Jasper Dean, Dominic Finocchio, M.J. Goerke, and Marjorie Williamson.
