I was drawn in to the mysterious aspect of this piece...the mood in which it invoked. What you see in shadow and in the light are each as important. The color and balance...perfect. The story is intriguing and invokes a variety of feelings and emotions. I liked what I don’t get to know about this piece, as much as what
I do know. — Juror: Beverly Soasey
A masterfully crafted and conceived work of art. Chuck Sharbaugh's architectural furniture is a metaphor for the human story; an intricate structure of combined religious and political symbols and forms contains, and often hides, a complex internal story of ingenuity and power.

Melanie Rothman masterfully captures the ugly face of hatred. Viewing "Revelations" is simultaneously uncomfortable and compelling.
My eye is drawn to the snarling nose and the downcast eyes -- one in shadow hinting at potential violence.
I don't want to see this face. I want to turn away and pretend this hatred doesn't exist.
