72nd Annual Juried Members’ Exhibition

Jul 1 – Sep 2, 2018

Juror’s Statement

It was my pleasure to jury the Springfield Museum of Art’s 72nd Annual Juried Members’ Exhibition. Viewing all that the region has to offer in terms of visual art was both eye opening and informative. From assembled/found object sculptures to printmaking, glass, collage, photography and painting, the entries were vast in media and subject matter.

Whether showing creativity with a medium, documenting one’s surroundings, or aspiring to provoke contemporary discourse, the exhibition underscores a broad breadth in which current members are working artistically. Furthermore, each work feels distinguishable from one artist to the next. The audience is sure to enjoy discovering a work(s) they wish to further explore and/or reflect upon in the 72nd Annual Juried Members’ Exhibition.
