Juror's Comments:

This exhibition offers much diversity. The inclusion of abstract and non-objective art alongside representational works reflect the art created in the Toledo area. It also shows a diversity in what artist’s find appealing to create. Not everyone wants to work like a photograph as there are so many ways to be inspired in our contemporary society.

So the exhibit show boldness in color, experimentation, and also reverence to historical practice.

The award choices are always difficult and this jurying was no different – I found myself needing more mid-place awards to be able to give – a good thing! This translates to the fact that there were
many pieces equally deserving of awards but I was limited to only a few.

Congratulations TWAL! I hope the public enjoys the show. It was a privilege to jury for you!
