I would like to thank the Palos Verdes Art Center for inviting me to jury The Summer Show 2022: PVAC Artists Groups Juried Exhibition, featuring the seven artists groups: Artists Open Group, Pacific Arts Group, Paletteers, Peninsula Artists, Photographic and Digital Artists, Third Dimension and The Artists Studio. These groups are significant for their role in the more than 90-year history of PVAC.
I had the privilege of working with many of these artists in my capacity as Director of Exhibitions from 1998-2013. They always impressed me with high quality and unique imagery. Jurying an exhibition of various mediums, styles and sizes is challenging. Selecting works that include landscapes, seascapes, portraiture, abstracts, spiritual, political, as well as mixed media and a smattering of three-dimensional ceramic pieces, gave me the opportunity to create a show that focused on the community spirit of the Art Center.
It was my honor to be involved with PVAC once again. Congratulations to all the artists who submitted work to this exhibition. Your dedication to your craft is honorable. Keep developing your ideas and challenging yourself in all areas!
