Center Forward Juror Statement
The Center Forward exhibition is a statement on the diversity and complexity of imagery currently being produced. Each image has the strength to stand alone, but they express an expanse of emotions and methods of creative expression as a group. The title Center Forward indicates the contradictions and complexity of human experience.
Tami Bone’s image La Nueva Vida is the juror’s selection, based on its simple complexity and creative innovation. Other images in the exhibition include War Four by Virgine Rochetti, Icarus by Gayle Stevens, Going Out by Matt Eich and Star of the Stars, Natsui by Yoichi Nagata. These strikingly different images each embody a unique statement on common experience.
This selected group of images allow me to see and experience the world in a new way; I hope that they offer the same opportunity for you. --Ann M. Jastrab
