Golden Age at the Annual Juried Exhibition

 

My painting Golden Age was accepted to the Annual Juried Exhibition at the UNCC.

 

A classmate heard that the overall theme of the show was 'Toxic'. While I could see my painting, with the fumes and factories, being related to contamination, I did not see how the other artwork related to the theme. 

 

The show has a minimalist set up. Many students are disappointed by the rejection of their beautiful artworks. It makes me wonder why the jury did not include more work, as an encouragement for the students' development.
