Thank you to all artists who submitted work to this exhibition. Though the selection process is never easy, it was a delight to see the variety of approaches and myriad of subjects presented on an intimate scale.
Often, small works can be overlooked or not taken seriously. Some think that smaller is easier or safer; I could not disagree more. With a small surface, there is less room—less room for mistakes or second guesses. Hesitations become obvious. Strong decisions are confident and clearly visible. To me, a small work often encompasses the essence of what the artist desires to communicate. There is no room for anything more.
Thanks again to each of you for sharing your work with me after this quiet year. It was a pleasure and I wish you each the best in your creative endeavors.
