Recently exhibited at The Curator Gallery was a group show celebrating “Artists of the Year.” The five artists selected were Clint Fulkerson, Gay Gaddis, Sonjie Feliciano Solomon, Ken Kiratsuka and Kacper Kowalski. Despite having unique art practices, each artist appears to be influenced by the natural world— paragliding in the sky (Kowalski), the natural beauty of Texas (Gaddis) or creating art on the sidewalk (Kiratsuka), these artists deserve the accolade “Artists of the Year.”
