Welcome to the Summer 2020 Juried Art Show Digital Exhibition! Although I am sad that you are not able to visit the Arts Center to see this incredible exhibition in person, I hope that the videos and photographs provided will give you a little reprieve in the unusual times we’re experiencing. Please help me spread a little beauty by sharing this digital exhibit with your friends and loved ones.
Below you’ll find a “virtual reception” including a welcome from myself, a brief walk-through of the gallery space, the juror’s statement, and statements about why each award and merit recognition was selected. At the bottom, you can click through the gallery of individual photos.
