Our Non-Human Companions
Juror: Fran Forman. Fran Forman says, “We are living in a time fraught with danger – to our democracy and to the global economy. We know that what happens in one part of the world effects other parts (like the old adage that when a butterfly flaps its wings in Africa, the wind is felt across the ocean).

What can the mind's eye see outside the realm of luminosity and perceive in its absence? What is made evident or alluded to by being concealed? Chiaroscuro is an international juried group exhibition open to
