The Spectrum 2012 Opening Reception was held last night in the Betty Barker Gallery. The event was our first mid-week opening ever and was well attended!
The Betty Barker Best in Show Award went to Heidi Lewis-Coleman for her The Relic Square a cut birch plywood on birch panel piece. Here it is, and what our jurist Christopher White had to say about it.
The Relic Square appeared entirely consistent with the artist’s other submissions, yet was also quite different in nearly every way. In choosing it as “Best in Show” my intent was to recognize an artist pushing her boundaries, utilizing diverse means and materials, and still retaining a clear artistic “voice.”
