Artspace111's "Texas Juried Exhibition"

"Art is powerful because it can take you out of your norm and expose you to many different things and get you to start to think about things you may not normally think about." - Jeff

"It offers an opportunity for people to interpret it in many different ways and start conversations.  It allows us to look at one thing so closely and then people have different perspectives of that and allows for deeper conversations to understand who we really are." - James

On Saturday, June 27, 2020, Queery's co-founders James and Jeff were interviewed by Make Something Beautiful at the "Texas Juried Exhibition" at Artspace111.  There, they answered the important question about what art is and what it does for people.
