You are most welcome.

I did not comment on any of the works other than to say which country the artists were from. This is how the show was curated as well. There were no artist statements or information - the variety of exhibitions were curated and grouped from what came forth in the call to enter.

I did not see everything. There was so much.

I visited the show today and was totally overwhelmed with the talent, the works, the incredible variety. Thank you for showcasing what you could here. I would certainly encourage anyone who can to go and see the show in person. But give yourself time to see it all. Well worth the visit!
