“It was a pleasure to review such a diverse range of work. I was particularly impressed to see that traditional mediums such as painting and drawing continue to endure with much success, and clearly hold their own in the company of newer and more experimental mediums involving digital technology. Many of the strongest works were those where the artists were thinking outside the established box, be it in their process, materials, or vision.”
— David S. Rubin, Curator of Contemporary Art, San Antonio Museum of Art
