CAA NY AREA MFA EXHIBITION HIGHLIGHT

I had full intentions of writing a review of the massive, overwhelming, talent-rich, and at times a complete clusterf@*k of an exhibit. Then I thought better and decided to skip all of the commentary, to leave the pros and cons by the wayside and to instead start giving out accolades. Compliments are good for the soul and should be dished out whenever possible – this stand out piece by Amber Cowan is better than a breath of fresh air. It is entirely uplifting for the mind and spirit. It’s like looking at a dream made of sweet candy and love. Nicely done Amber. Nicely done, indeed.

Voted Best In Show by this contributor is:
