We are looking for a wide variety of interpretations to this title. In this time of social upheaval, Does this title inspire you to paint about injustice? Themes on immigration, women’s rights, or racial injustice can be expressed. Or the interpretation can be a platform to address your personal goals and how they are attained.

Juror: Satarra Leona
Satarra Leona is the owner of Arts In Color Gallery where she represents artists domestically and internationally. “Satarra” means star in Farci. It’s a common name in Southeast Asian countries and cultures. Ever since she was a child, she has been incredibly obsessed with art.Satarra is African American and was raised in Japan. Her father is an engineer, and they moved to Japan for his job when she was two months old. Growing up in a foreign country, and openly knowing that people around you are different, it really shapes the way you view the world. Japanese culture was so different from African/ Black culture that she was intrigued by Japanese society, culture, and art. Growing up in Japan is where her love for cultural art began.
Satarra graduated from Hawaii Pacific University where she majored in International Business. She knew that she wanted to be a curator or director of advancement and work in the business side of the art world.
Satarra studied abroad in places like Morocco where she interned at a refugee camp. She taught English, business consulting as well as art. Studying abroad was a dream come true where she was able to learn more about other cultures and experience the world through different styles of art.
Satarra hopes that everyone who comes across her website is able to view the artwork of the artists that she represents and emerge themselves into the mind of these artists.
