RENE SOTO GALLERY

Juried Show

We had hoped to have all of the pieces in the exhibit on display at our gallery but because of these uncertain times we felt it was safer for everyone to display the exhibit online. We would like to thank all of the artists who applied and congratulate those who were accepted. All of the pieces in this exhibit are for sale. If you would like to purchase one please email renesotogallery@gmail.com.


Exhibition Chairs:

Nancy Breakstone and Jennifer Moné Hill


A note from our Juror:


"I was impressed by the immense range, of subjects, styles and materials used, and the generally very high quality of work submitted, all within the size limitations of the show. While there were many works, notably Ruth Ungerer's "Meditation," Katherine Draper's "Field" and Susan Kirschner's "Cause and Effect" that in their unique ways articulated the abstract power of natural forms, there were captivating and singular works powerfully expressing these artists visions – Susan Tabachnick's lyrical and gently humorous compositions from found objects, Diana Gubbay's experimentation with layering paint and photography, and the brilliant tour-de-force of Norm Siegels' trompe l'oeil works. It was especially difficult to select only 6 Honorable Mention awards. There were so many more that I wished I could have included."
