“Another work that dwells on the role of memory as a tool for self-examination is Ron Longsdorf’s Drain, a sculptural installation combining domestic objects and video to create a familiar life situation.” - Vesela Sretenovic, Juror, GAPS, Greater Reston Arts Center, Reston, VA

“The sculptural work by Ron Longsdorf and Mona Mullins Williams (honorable mentions) of house constructions evoked the sculpture of William Christenberry's decaying structures in rural Alabama.” - Marlene Rothacker, Juror, Radius 250, Artspace Gallery, Richmond, VA.
