Pat Boas—On the Power of the Arts
"Regional exhibitions are as important for artists as they are for audiences. They allow us to see our work in new contexts, to hear different voices and gauge new responses. Sometimes they allow us to try things we’ve never done before. It takes a vision, conviction, intelligence and plain hard work to mount the caliber of exhibitions the museum presents, year after year. I am honored to join the many artists in the SVMoA exhibition roster and grateful to be associated with this extraordinary institution."
