June Exhibit: JAHC Juried Art Show
"Coming out of a collectively turbulent year, I was interested in showcasing the artists' creations without the restriction of a theme. What had the artists been drawn to create? Some spoke to the times directly, while others made no direct mention to quarantine but evoked strong feelings we may have encountered this past year through their work. Important conversations are had in this show - traditional land ownership, climate change, as well as more lighthearted pieces like a joyous basket of onions. Having the big conversations while holding space for in-the-moment joy is a balance I hope we all can find. Congratulations to all, it has been a pleasure to see your work."
--- Alison Bremner, Juror
