ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION
GFAA artists were invited to submit an artwork of their choosing. No theme was provided. Submissions were juried. 30 pieces were selected by Ann Gilroy, Curator at the Thomas Center Galleries.
Authors were then asked to select a painting and “respond” in a story, poem, or reflection. The response was not to be a critique or evaluation. Without knowledge of the artist or even the title of the work, the task was to answer the question, “What comes to mind?” and “How does this speak to you?”

Please be aware that none of the matched artists and authors had any idea prior to the installation of this exhibit about whether their visions were in alignment and harmony or entirely disparate. It is hoped that, either way, the results will allow for interesting conversation.
As an exhibition guest, you’re encouraged to ask yourself, what do the paintings and responses evoke for you?
