Show Jurors: Jennifer Clark, Keith Conforti and Page Railsback.
Jennifer Clark - Plymouth artist and 2022’s Best in Show Winner explains that growing up with artists encouraged her to take her imagination as far as it would go eventually leading to a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Utah. Creativity also appears in the interpretive range of her subjects and her embrace of impressionistic emotion and luminous color elements. Her Best in Show piece, “Bird Song”, results from her fascination of where water touches land, the contrast and harmony of different elements sharing space. The title for this piece came from a Claude Monet quote, “I would like to paint the way a bird sings.”
Keith Conforti works professionally as a photographer, graphic designer and college professor. His visual style relies heavily on composition, honed by his years as a graphic designer, to create order out of nature’s chaos. He explores neglected and abandoned worlds, creating stories about the contradiction of beauty and decay—what once was, what remains, and what new life emerges from the ravages of time and neglect. Keith’s fine art photography has garnered recognition and numerous awards from the South Shore Art Center, North River Arts Society, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Page Railsback has been painting and teaching in the South Shore as well as in Mexico for many years. She lives in Scituate and is a member of the Copley Society and the South Shore Art Center. She shows her work at several Galleries. She received a Residency at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown in 2013.
