Curating the Purse Building group show, No Two Alike, has been a rewarding and pleasurable experience for me. I was able to visit each artist in his or her studio and select pieces for the exhibition from actual work instead of having to rely on slides of their work. I chose the title No Two Alike because, having worked in the building for almost two years myself, I know all the artists and I appreciate the diversity of their work. Nevertheless, I feared that the strength of this diversity in style and media might interfere with the flow or cohesiveness of the exhibit. But as I visited each artist and saw the work that they wanted me to consider for the group exhibition I put my fear aside. The strength of the show is the diversity. Intuitively the artists produced a cohesive body of work. I am impressed with inventiveness and the integrity of these artists.
