Those Who Dream by Night
March 11 – April 21, 2011
"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity:
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." 
~T.E. Lawrence

 Juror's Statement:
 
     "It was a pleasure and a challenge to be juror for Those Who Dream By Night.  The stylistic diversity of this exhibit was impressive and a reminder of how many people are making unique and very personal art.  I saw influences range from Bruegel in the 16th century to early American Modernism of the 20th century, Abstract Expressionism of the 1950's to Surrealism of the 1920's, fantasy of 19th century and today's use of digital media.  
     I gave serious consideration to the theme of the exhibit while reviewing all of the entries.  The final result is a display of art that adhered to that theme both broad and specific and revealed each artist's commitment to realizing a personal vision.  Technique and presentation in support of a concept is very important in the creation of art and more than any other factor this influenced my choices. Congratulations to all of the artists in the exhibition.  I appreciated the opportunity to see the artwork, think about the artwork and learn from it."
