I am happy to announce that my both of my entries in the 8th annual Figurative Art Competition at the Light, Space and Time Gallery earned awards!!
The gallery received 626 entries from 27 different countries around the world as well as from 32 different states in the U.S. Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Figurative” theme by submitting their best abstract or representational art for this competition. I've been doing quite a lot of digital renders featuring dancers recently, so it was natural for me to enter these two images.
The exhibition has been divided into three media categories. Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3D Art. In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from the media categories.
The gallery included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.
So it's a very special honor for me to have been awarded a Special Merit award for my digital artwork, "Dance Like No One is Watching."
In addition, my entry titled "Pas De Deux" earned a Special Recognition in the Photography/Digital Art category.
To say I am thrilled to have won these awards would be an understatement!
