The opening of the in-person exhibit was originally scheduled for Jan. 15 but was canceled due to “the current rise in COVID cases,” according to a media advisory from the association. Opening receptions usually draw large crowds.
The works were recently judged by Matthew Clay-Robison, director of York College Gallery.
“This exhibition is filled with works that demonstrate impressive skill, brilliant use of color, dynamic composition, and an inventive approach to the landscape tradition.
“While I was generally impressed with the overall quality of the exhibition, the works that stood out to me the most and were selected for awards were those that also carried a sense of truth about the region represented; these are works that evoke immediate recognition, not only because they resemble places I have been in York, but because I can smell them and even feel them. There is a sense of honesty to them. subject, depicting aspects of York ranging from the pretty to the gritty,” Clay-Robison says after judging.
