    SMAart Gallery & Studio is pleased to present the third
    annual group exhibit curated by artist/curator Maggie
    Malloy.

    Curator's Statement:  Making art is chancy; it doesn’t mix
    well with predictability.  Uncertainty and risk-taking for the
    artist is the essential, inevitable companion to desire in
    making art. ‘Making’; is a process that tells the artist what
    they are thinking, hearing, and having it make sense. It is a
    process of constantly going back & forth, doubting and
    testing. Doubt is a form of intelligence. It becomes
    feedback of the vision. What the artist knows about their
    current work is contained in the last work. Fingerprints are
    all over the work and trace the willingness to embrace the
    obstacle of uncertainties. The chancy act of prolonged
    engagement often becomes the artist’s statement.
