Bird Song - Jennifer Clark
Jennifer Clark - Plymouth artist, Jennifer Clark, 2022’s Best in Show Winner, explains that growing up in a family of artists, she was encouraged to use her creativity as far as her imagination would go. While studying graphic design her junior year in college, a paintbrush found its way into her hand, which resulted in a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Utah . It has not only changed the way that she perceives life, but it also altered how she expresses herself artistically. 
The versatility of Jenny’s work appears in the interpretive range of her subjects, from realistic to humorous to modern abstraction, but most of all with an empathetic touch.  She embraces impressionistic emotion and luminous color element, delighting in bringing them to life. Jenny strives to pair grounded, natural elements with the surreal and vivid nature of the untamed wilderness.
Of her Best in Show piece, “ Bird Song”, Jenny states,: I have always been fascinated visually where water touches land. It creates contrast while maintaining harmony, different elements sharing space. Salt marshes are a perfect example of this, which is what inspired me for this piece. Trying to capture something that soothes the soul. The title for this piece came from a Claude Monet quote, " I would like to paint the way a bird sings."

Upper Antelope Canyon - Keith Conforti
Keith Conforti works professionally as a photographer, graphic designer and college professor. He teaches classes and workshops on both disciplines.  His visual style relies heavily on composition, honed by his years as a graphic designer, to create order out of nature’s chaos.
Keith states that, “I use photography to explore neglected and abandoned worlds, allowing me to create stories about the contradiction of beauty and decay. My subjects…tell stories of past and present—what once was, what remains, and what new life emerges from the ravages of time and neglect. These images urge the viewer to rekindle connections and feelings with our past and those elements of society that have been reduced to elusive memories.” 
Keith’s fine art photography has garnered recognition and numerous awards from the South Shore Art Center, North River Arts Society, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Department of Conservation and Recreation. His commercial work has been published in the Cohasset Mariner and South Shore Living magazine.
