Juror’s Statement: The artworks in the "Secret" exhibition include a range of works literally interpreting the title to a conceptual portrayal. Art should create a dialogue. The exhibition encourages conversation amongst the viewers as they interject their own past and current "secrets" contributing to the conceptual theme of the show. Specific pieces of of a provocative and less mainstream nature were deliberately selected to foster a dialogue. Do you have a secret to share? Joan McLoughlin The McLoughlin Gallery September, 2015
