Insight.

What meaning  comes to mind when you hear this word? When spoken, this word can be broadly understood as Insight, In Sight and Incite.

In January, the Cape Cod Museum of Art invited all visual artists in the United States to submit artwork reflecting their interpretations of the word INSIGHT.

523 artworks were submitted by 272 artists from 30 states across the country for INSIGHT. Only 65 artworks have been selected from 60 artists in 16 states by juror Grace Hopkins Artist and Gallery Director, Berta Walker Galleries.

Most of the artwork in this Exhibition is available for purchase.

A note from the juror:

“Narrowing down the artwork for this exhibition was challenging. I first had to digest all 500+ submissions as a whole before any threads of meaning could be drawn between the works, and a final cohesive subset could be chosen. As a gallery director I am regularly confronted with an aesthetic puzzle. But, when you throw in the added thematic complexity of INSIGHT and the sheer number of works submitted, making a final selection was both a demanding and rewarding exercise in distillation. I want to thank everyone who came forward and placed their artwork into this pool. Another juror, with different values and sensibilities would have solved this very differently. Your collective vision, ability and insight moved me.”
