These artists were selected from a pool of over 100 artists who exhibited in the museum's juried "Ontario Open Art Exhibition" in 2013, which was adjudicated by Daniel Foster. Mr. Foster is the Executive Director of Oceanside Museum of Art and the Founding Board Chair of Arts Connection - the Arts Council of San Bernardino County.
In selecting the "Invitational" participants for 2014, Mr. Foster responded enthusiastically to the artists' skilled execution of diverse expressions and subjects. During his 2013 gallery walkthrough, he challenged the artists to always push beyond their comfort zone. The resulting "Invitational" showcase explores a multiplicity of themes.
