This year's juror is Lilly Wei, a New York-based art critic, essayist and independent curator who writes frequently for Art in America and other publications in both the U.S. and abroad. She is a contributing editor at ARTnews and Art Asia Pacific and has curated exhibitions on a wide range of subjects, recently The Invisible Thread: Spirit of Buddhism in Contemporary Art (Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Staten Island, New York, 2004) and Glass, Seriously (Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Program, Long Island City, New York, 2005.)

Ms. Wei's final juried selection of 51 works by 38 artists came from over 1,000 entries by 220 artists. Selections include work in a variety of media and reflect the expansive range of issues and subject matter that contemporary artists are dealing with both in the Capital Region and in the larger art world.

She was widely known as a supporter and board member of many community organizations, notably the Albany Institute of History & Art, Olana Historic Site, and Historic Albany Foundation. Her dedication and service has left an enduring legacy to the museum and to the Capital Region.
