Regional Artists: An Open, Juried Show 2018

Juror's Statement

It seems so important these days to find and highlight the common experiences, emotions, and stories that unite. The artists in this exhibition have given us a visual feast to consume and to share.

These works tell intimate and expansive stories of THIS time, THIS place, THESE moments. They invite a pause, that precious time to look deeply, exploring with our eyes, finding resonance and meanings in our own lives. The setting for the story, the moment presented, is ready for us to join.

There is nature and the natural in abundance here. Many of these artists give us hints at the color, line, and texture in regional landscapes that drive their contemplation and feed their questions. We can feel the sun's warmth, the light of summer days through drying shirts.  Ripples on water seem to continue widening their paths. We can visually walk in that space between sky and horizon, and then run our fingers through the complexity in tree branches.

We can hear the murmuring: THIS place, THIS moment, Look HERE

Everywhere, there is the presence of the human, observing, discovering, interacting, moving, responding, and interpreting. We are tempted to enter into the dance, to participate in the invented patches of color, to celebrate whimsical passages, to decipher marks as ancient languages, and to wander through energized interiors. We can feel the joy in the space between people as they gather, and then the quiet solitude in a garden.

THIS can happen, IMAGINE the possibilities, Notice HOW this works…

There is stillness and there is energy. There is light and there is dark, with the myriad of emotions that comes from the human condition. We can explore, find, and be nourished by the glass-half-full common ground here.

Bask, Wonder, Pause, and Share…
