OPTICAL ILLUSIONS by Bill Harrison. "This exhibit is a cross-section of work that illustrates different ways of looking at everyday objects and subjects. We look at the things around us, but we often don't really see them! I have found that everyday things all have interesting aspects about them . . . but, only if we take the time to look." Centre Gallery, West.

About the Juror
"Matt Lively began his career as an artist at a young age when he believed that the life of an artist would afford him late, sleepy mornings. While sleeping until noon did not work out, he has enjoyed a successful career - guided by his suburban upbringing in Richmond, Virginia. Lively graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a degree in sculpture, and soon after moved to Atlanta and began creating his whimsical artwork. Lively’s work in sculpture and in restoration have provided him with the tools and knowledge to create three-dimensional artwork. His paintings depict implied movement through subtle hints of things that have been displaced. The paintings playfully represent a less hectic time where the minutes go by so slowly that normally stagnant objects seem to be moving."
