PCA’s exhibit Faces is a must-see experience. Artists have created human and animal faces, faces of objects and perceptions of a face, and much more in a variety of mediums. Following are judge Neil Orlowski’s picks, including some of his comments on these pieces. Overall, he was very impressed with the quality and diversity of the art. He was drawn to many that had impact or strong emotional quality.

Quote by Jim: I grew up in an environment surrounded by photography and design and at a time when things were simple. Three basic concepts greatly influenced my photographic work: “KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid;” “Less is More;” and “Form Follows Function.”
