The juror for the 34th Art in Gadsden is sculptor Mark Dickson. While the Gadsden Arts Exhibition Committee scores and selects the artwork submitted to the exhibition, the juror selects the award winners.
Mark Dickson's work is collected throughout the Southeast in public and private collections, and he has public sculpture on display in Universities and colleges in North Florida and South Georgia. Working with multiple metals, Dickson uses tight design and light abstraction and the use of pigments and patinas to bring to life his beautiful sculptures. The artist refers to his work as "ancient futurism," modern work that represents as artifacts from the distant past. Mark Dickson was born and raised in California, and eventually made his home in Tallahassee with his wife. He is an adjunct professor at North Florida Community College in Madison, Florida, and maintains a working sculpture studio in Tallahassee's Railroad Square Art District.

This sculpture feels like a study in dualities, and that really intrigued me. This work is both mysterious and inviting, using masculine media and depicting a feminine form, the hard exterior, and the visible transparent interior---these binary dynamics are executed so effortlessly. While looking at this sculpture, I also asked myself is she is putting her mask on or taking it off?
