“I love the moving, sublime qualities in your abstract paintings. Each of your works is incredibly elemental. Using sensuous, romantic colors they convey a rich passion that is compelling. Collectively, your contemporary works are vivid, expressionist paintings that communicate profound feelings to the viewer.”

At the event on March 10 the finalists work will be on display and everyone attending will be able to vote on “The People’s Choice”. All the pieces in the show are inspired by the theme of community.
