excerpts By HELEN L. KOHEN  Herald Art Critic

 The juror was Diane Waldman, deputy director of New York's Solom R. Guggenheim Museum, a lure that drew a lot of entrees 1,110 from 431 artists. Her weeding ended with the smallest Annual in memory - 71 pieces by 38 artists. It's quite in keeping with national trends that 26 of those are photographs... commitment to her artists of choice is impressive. If she liked their art, she liked all of it.
  Strong taste at work - Art is not a commodity to be ordered in two of these and two of those.  It's always better to see strong taste at work, selections you can disagree with.

 To the list of awards, for example, I'd add an airy and graceful work of sculpture by artist Jim Liccione.  A floor screen called Save The Rain Forest, and with its twisted steel tendrils and dangling wood plantains, it looks as if it might have been created by Giacometti in a Baroque moment.
