Merit Award at Contemporary Realism Biennial 2014

Singing Cat, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board

As I announced awhile back, my painting 'Sing Cat' was accepted into the Contemporary Realism Biennial 2014 at the Fort Wayne Art Museum. Here's some more info and good news.

The Fort Wayne Museum of Art’s Contemporary Realism Biennial is an invitational and juried exhibition which highlights the strength and innovation of the most compelling trends in American and international realism.

Only 34 works were juried in from more than 700 entries from around the country, and 22 works were selected by invitation from the world’s masters of realism. This year marks the first time when the number of invited artists rivals that of the juried artists, a decision made by FWMoA President and CEO Charles A. Shepard III that was meant to elevate the status of this exhibition as a showcase for not just emerging realists all over the country, but also for the powerhouses of realism in established circles. This hybrid of emerging and established artists presents a dynamic exhibition with a diversity of artistic perspectives.
