Dear art working friends –
I know many of you have been eagerly awaiting the news concerning the 5th Annual Hundred Valleys Exhibit results. Tom Browning, this year's juror had 176 images to choose from. Those whose works were selected are listed below. If your name is not on the listing, keep working, keep submitting, never to be discouraged, "beauty IS in the eye of the beholder".
Here are some words from Tom Browning concerning his efforts to put together the exhibit.
"Judging such a show is based on several aspects that I consider to be most important in producing a painting or sculpture. Not only is the overall aesthetics of a piece important, but such things as composition, originality, drawing, and the handling of the medium are all important … Not everyone can agree on one judge's decisions, and that alone is important for all participants who submitted work to understand.It is just one person's opinion, but I hope that what I have to offer as a professional artists is acceptable and understood by most. I appreciated the opportunity to view everyone's work, and they should all be congratulated for being willing to undergo the scrutiny of a competition such as this. Hopefully no one will be discouraged from doing so in the future. It is more important for every artist to continually be a student and strive to make the next piece of art better than the last. Respectfully, Tom Browning"From my heart, congratulations to everyone for submitting, often a difficult step to take once you have conquered the artwork itself. I will be emailing those who have been juried in a contract for the exhibit that will need to be signed and returned. Remember, do not, again, do not make any changes or adjustments to the accepted pieces! Just make sure they come in signed.
