‟This was a year of global and personal challenges for so many, and yet artists endure even in their loneliest moments to create and make sense out of their worlds. I saw evidence of deep introspection from much of the content and quality time dedicated to many of the submissions. My selections for this exhibit were based on the ability of the art to convey experience in the form of feelings and ideas as well as originality. Clean presentation and artisanship are key in taking a concept from the artist’s head to the viewer’s understanding even if that understanding raises questions. For an artwork to come alive, it needs audience engagement, and those connections are made in the careful handling of materials, the representation of the imagined, and the constant scrutiny of the maker to see what unfolds as a piece develops. I am impressed with this exhibit and congratulate all of the artists on their best efforts.”
