Jurors Statement

I am honored to serve as juror for this exhibit, “Matters of the Heart.” I was impressed by the many ways the theme was interpreted, and how each artist’s “heart” was communicated in their artwork. Some pieces delivered an immediate punch with strong design and vivid contrast; others quietly told their story after a second or third look. There were many pieces that displayed a high level of technical mastery. Visitors to the exhibit will be delighted by several new approaches to subject matter, especially figurative work.

I carefully considered each piece and compared it with the others with respect to initial impact, composition, originality, technical skill, content, and finally presentation. Naturally there were difficult choices to be made, given the many worthy pieces entered. If your piece was not included or did not receive an award, please know that I was limited by the space and there are many more pieces that deserve recognition.

Congratulations to every brave and talented artist who entered. Keep on expressing yourself through your art and sharing it with the world!

Best Wishes,
Kris​ Parins

Searle & Reid Hodges Galleries January 6-30, 2015

Opening Reception Thursday, January 8th, 5-7pm

They come from as far away as Quebec and as close as next door. Some are painters, some are sculptors, some are potters, some are jewelers, and some are wood workers. Though their tools vary, they share a talent and passion for creating something from nothing, for seeing the world from a different perspective. Every year, we celebrate them and their work in our Members Exhibit. On display until 30th.

Juror Statement
I applaud the enthusiasm of all the artists in approaching their chosen materials. The work chosen for the exhibition represents a clarity of process in achieving the final outcome. Each work focuses on  some aspect of the condition of being human and so each contributes to a multi-faceted showcase of talent of the members of ArtCenter Manatee.

Transformations is an open, juried, all media exhibit. A transformation is a change. It can be in form or appearance or structure. It can also signify a remake or renewal, a morphing of one thing into another or a shift in process or life cycles. You decide.
