The Cox Fine Arts Center — a spectacular venue — makes for an impressive exhibition site, allowing the exhibited fine art to be fully appreciated. It truly creates the space and conditions for the art to breathe and come alive. All the beautiful juxtapositions invite comparisons, analysis and true inspiration.”  Petra Fallaux, Juror Professional Division
