“Reconstruction” featured members of CAA and other invited member groups of VIVA Art Center (Women Painters West, Valley Artists Guild, and Valley Watercolor Society, along with invited groups San Fernando Valley Art Club and Artist Co-op 7).

The Juror, John Greco, is a printmaker operating Josephine Press studio in Santa Monica and collaborator with Christopher John Gallery. He also instructs classes in drawing and printmaking at Santa Monica College. In judging a work of art, John Greco looks for inventiveness, craftsmanship, and harmonies in composition and content. "Attention, excellence, and a tension that springs from self discipline are essential to (the) making of good art." Congratulations to the artists selected by the juror!
