this show was both exciting and challenging. I was delighted
to view so many works that showed such great promise. The works
chosen were from all schools of practice, from realistic to abstract.
Overall, the works that drew my attention most, were the ones
that showed great drama. Strong shapes, good color sense and
dramatic composition were what captured me as I viewed the works
for this exhibit. It takes artistic license to create the sparkthe
drama, that makes a work all so interesting. I enjoyed seeing
the pieces that took that risk. They left me with the inspiration
to do the same. I believe there is a creative vision in each
of us. Some of us have the ability to create works, others appreciate
them. I am glad to be able to witness these talents in this exhibit."
