Aftermath includes a wide range of artists and their work that represent a great cross section of our country to include a few local and international artists as well. They speak through their art about the effects that traumatic events from natural and manmade disasters has had on them personally and on their work. As our juror, Laurel Reuter, Founder and Chief Curator of the North Dakota Museum of Art states, “Today’s artists are not asked to record the definitive history of their times but instead to give their contemporary audiences the means to understand their own times. Ours is not a contemplative society; artists often are. For some artists, like some writers, assume the role of moral compass.”
