Official Selections

First Prize - Winter Thaw by Cheryl Schlenker

This semi-abstract piece immediately caught my eye with its excellent shape making, outstanding use of warm / cool color contrasts and visual language. Visual language means the artist’s ability to tell the story of winter thaw without detailing trees, rocks, snow, etc., that would otherwise be required for a representational piece. Painted with the hand and mind of a master, Winter Thaw and the artist responsible is well deserving of this award recognition.

Second Prize - Exploring the Creek by Jennifer Loyle

A beautifully painted piece Exploring the Creek just made me stop and stare.  So much good draftsmanship and painterly quality!  Excellent division of space and shape making, and the artist’s storytelling ability just warms my heart.  I expect that many who view this piece will smile in recognition or in anticipation of experiencing such tender moments.

Honorable Mention - Feline Fiesta by Dee Casner

Sometimes art just needs to be whimsical and Feline Fiesta captures this feeling perfectly.  Beautifully painted and with an artist’s eye for shape making and space distribution I also applaud the artist for eliminating all extraneous detail so the focus is squarely on the happy, napping feline.

Honorable Mention - Morning Light Magic by Laura Ducceschi

This piece made me stop and wonder, is life really this beautiful? It is such a powerful example of how outside in nature’s studio we often find the greatest challenges and the greatest rewards. Very artistic division of space and the capture of natural light is just stunning.
