JUROR STATEMENT – The exhibition presents artists whose work explores a sense of beginning, origin, and family narratives. The work has the potential to respond to a specific place or time, informed by environment, history, and location. We highly encourage work that is introspective and that explores ways of seeing and experiencing space, time, and the natural world.
