Below is the statement of the juror, Scott Canty


"Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind."

Louise Nevelson

This statement by Louise Nevelson is an amazing truth about our world, Art is all around us, but it takes an artist to see that world and to pull from it and make something unique to our human eye.  Creativity is a unique quality given to all humans. Artists are the privileged ones who explore and utilize their creative gift.  Artists speak a language all their own, a creative language unique to themselves.


I am excited to have had the privilege to be the juror for ALL THINGS CONSIDERED exhibition sponsored by South Bay Contemporary gallery.  This non profit gallery has been rooted in the community for many years supporting artists and giving them a creative outlet in the community and local arts scene. What I find exciting is the creative approach that artists have in representing the world around them, expressing their political, social, religious and personal views, in a vast collection of styles and media.

In this exhibition, I was searching for works that moved me beyond the normal landscapes and still-life, looking for individual works that inspired in some way, either spiritual or emotional.  In addition, I also look for works that are well crafted and presented with craftsmanship and individuality.  Although, I was looking at digital images on a computer, so I am relaying on the quality of that medium to show me the best.  Congratulations to all the artists for giving me the opportunity to see and experience their work.  And thanks to Peggy Zask for her continued belief and vision for the artists in the South Bay.
