Mask Exhibition and Auction Curatorial Statement
The 2006 Mask Exhibition and Auction was assembled to represent the magnificent diversity within artists dealing with one theme, Masks. The exhibition is by no means representative of all genres of Masks, but instead a national interpretation of “Mask” influenced by life, travel, belonging and escape.
|Certainly the Mask Exhibition and Auction will be vast and expansive, not only in numbers but also in the styles and the stories exhibition visitors will have after viewing the Mask artworks. The important goal of raising money for the festival, embracing our differences and celebrating the MASK will be an easy task with the support of others. I hope the community will visit the exhibition often through the months of September and October, and enjoy what the artists contributed to the 2006 Mask Exhibition and Auction.
Last, but not least, many thanks to Festival Director Kim Mason for her dedication to the enhancement of south central Kentucky through the Bowling Green International Festival and the arts.
-Andee Rudloff, Curator/Coordinator
