 I'm really pleased to finally be a participant IN this exhibit. For the past five years, I've been the chairperson FOR this exhibit, and have as such been unable to have work in it. (The 1st year I was co-chair with Chris McAdoo). The two new chair-people replacing me are Kelly Hider  and Dale Mackey, who I am so excited to have running this exhibit. Kelly Hider is a past award winner in the exhibit (2013)
