This event has ended.

Viridian Artists is pleased to present ” Director’s Choice: From Virtual To Actual 6”, curated by Vernita Nemec, Viridian’sdirector, featuring a selection of artists who entered our 27th International Juried Competition in 2016, curated by Tumelo Mosaka.

Although these artists were not “winners” of Viridian’s 24th International Juried Competition, their art is uniquely interesting and was of particular interest to Nemec. Viridian’s“Director’s Choice” Exhibitions arise from one of Viridian’s primary missions: to provide meaningful exposure to under-known artists of all ages whose art merits wider attention.

Each of the 15 artists in this diverse exhibition has her or his personal obsession that serves as the starting point for their artistic search to transform inner concerns into an outer reality. The results of transforming these realities into art, remains open to each viewer’s interpretation and becomes the first translation of the virtual into the actual. The second translation is the opportunity to see the art in the flesh instead of in a powerpoint presentation as the art were seen in the Juried Competition in 2016.

Below, many of the artists speak for themselves about their motives & intentions in the work. For those that are silent, the viewer is invited to look more closely at the work for clues into the whys.
