  • “To have the response that I did online was breathtaking. To have that then deemed worthy by the jurists was humbling. This push has moved me out of the revolving door of creating for myself and a select few and put me on a stage, albeit a small one. It is very easy to disagree; to have ‘points of view’; to have ‘an opinion’; to stand divided. But sharing art seems to supersede all that. It somehow miraculously bridges. It allows for comment, for sharing thoughts, for discussion and enjoyment; for introspection, rather than discord. This is why your organization is extraordinary, and to be a part of this in a small way is an honor.”
    Artist: Haia Hason, Thornhill, Ontario, Canada
  • “SNAC-expo gave me, as an artist, the opportunity to represent my country, with culture and art. The opening night at ZK Gallery in San Francisco was a great opening for a whole year of exposure.SNAC-expo is an organized, professional and friendly organization. They are giving us, the artists, exposure and a path of Expression.”
    Artist: Sagi Erez, San Jose, California, U.S.A.
  • “… the idea of social vote is brilliant. I think that so often the work gets rejected based on the personal taste of the judge, but when the work gets viewed by thousands of objective people you get a fair chance to get accepted. And third, the idea of multi-gallery exhibition is brilliant- it gives your work a chance to be viewed in different settings and by different groups of people multiplying its chances to find the right audience. I am absolutely blessed to be part of this experience. ”
    Artist: Evgenia Espinoza, Madrid, Spain
