Juror's Statement
So much of our world is drab from concrete streets and sidewalks, dire news reports and the grit of everyday living. Perhaps this is why our eye is immediately drawn to something that sparkles, that sets itself apart from the ordinary. Glitz can become an indulgence, a chance to be glamorous and revel in the attention the spotlight brings. Glitz doesn't take itself too seriously and yet, can be transformative forcing a second glance and making us reconsider something as common as an evergreen tree dressed up with ornaments and lights. The artists in this exhibition all bedazzle our eyes with pop and punch, creating objects that make us think about what attracts and what repels our senses.
