Juror: L. L. Schneider ” I often come to this area as I have homes in Florida, Northern Pennsylvania and Carnegie PA. In between my own exhibits,  I make it a point to stop in local galleries and museums whenever I travel the country as the changing trends inspire me. It was just by chance that I was able to review this show and I thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of artwork that was presented.
