The diversity and range of work on exhibit is a testament to the vitality and strength of the Allied Artists of Johnstown, particularly during these trying times. I commend all exhibiting artists, whose commitments to personal expression via the visual arts are admirable. My criteria for evaluating artwork is generally as follows: excellence in the chosen media, strong compositional and design elements, and most importantly, originality and creativity in personal expression or concept. I encourage all members of the Allied Artists to continue their creative pursuits, with best wishes for an aesthetically satisfying journey.
