Telling the Story
Original water media on paper - Sold
Purchase Award. National Juried Exhibition. “Telling The Story.” Mark Arts. Mary R. Koch Arts Center. Wichita, KS.
“Telling The Story” was accepted into the Bauhaus Prairie Art Gallery on line exhibition “Abstraction: Theoretical, Conceptual & Intellectual”
Juror’s Notes: Things I look for in artwork are the effective utilization of the Elements and Principles of Design, Technique, and a message that speaks to the viewer. The idea of a “message” transcends method, media, and technique. For each person this idea of a message is different but unilaterally there for all people viewing the image. It should continue to “talk” beyond the first viewing and cause one to want to continue viewing the image over and over.
“Telling The Story” was accepted into the National Juried Exhibition “Art Comes Alive.” Art Comes Alive is nationally recognized as “the Academy Awards for Artists.” There is no other event that celebrates the visual arts by awarding over $250,000 to artists in a variety of categories including purchase awards, gallery contracts, publishing contracts and monetary awards.
"There are no two identical ways artwork can be viewed. There is no right or wrong when viewing artwork our minds need to be as open as a child’s, playing with colorful building blocks or choosing colors from a box of crayons filled with possibilities." - Christine Alfery
