Juror's Statement

(excerpt)

 

 

 

 

There are so many wonderful works in this exhibition that viewers should find something that connects with their personal sense of beauty--and perhaps works that challenge their preconceptions.  It is great to see that as we move past the first decade of this new century, the value of handmade objects remains intact.  Let us hope this remains true, since science has demonstrated that there is a direct relationship between human intelligence and the ability to use our hands.  It is equally good, in the aftermath of the selection process, to learn that both young and established artists will find common ground in the spaces of the galleries hosting this show.  Traditions are best when transmitted and reinterpreted. 

 

I would like to extend my heartfelt admiration to all the artists who supported this exhibition with their entries.  I believe this show's success comes out of each artist's sense of inner necessity.  This is art that needed to be made and deserves to be seen.  I also would like to acknowledge Betty Talbot and the dedicated staff at the Ohio Craft Museum for providing a thoughtful context in presenting this art to the public.  Their work is driven by the same love and mission that the artists have and can be felt as soon as you pass through the doors of their museum.  My sincerest thank you for the invitation to play a part in this juried competition.
