JUROR'S STATEMENT

This exhibition is a wonderful showcase that underscores the mission of the Rowayton Arts Center: a place where all creative spirits are welcomed and encouraged. In this time of Covid-19, I have seen the power of the arts, especially the Fine Arts, to anchor and nurture the human spirit through this time of enforced solitude and isolation. The works included in this exhibition are a testament to the human spirit and this show captures and encapsulates that notion. Some works make you think, others to feel, others to laugh while others ask us to really look!

I hope that you enjoy this exhibit—perhaps it’s your first foray back into a public sphere– as much as I did when I viewed the work and that your spirit, like mine, was lifted.
