Nathan Zamarron Juror’s statement:   

I thoroughly enjoyed being the juror for the Not Big (3) exhibition and would like to thank Mary Rezny for the opportunity.  This exhibition and the hundreds of entries is a testament to the vibrant arts community we are fortunate to have in Lexington, KY.   While looking through the works I saw a vast array of aesthetic and approach to art making.  The variety of media and subject matter made the selection process fun and engaging as well as challenging.  The thread that ties the work together is of course the size, a maximum of 12” x 12”.   I looked for work that had successfully designed a composition with visual impact and intellectual stimulation.   I also awarded inclusion to artists that were trying new things and attempt to get the viewer to think.  I believe the exhibit as a whole is quite strong, representing some of the best regional artists exhibiting side by side with other national and international artists. 

See the photo gallery for images of all the finalist of the notBIG(3) small arts competition.

Congratulations to all the exhibiting artists in notBIG(3)!
