  Why can’t people exist and coexist together? Through daily trials and tribulations we have to be reminded that it’s okay to exist. To enjoy life, enjoy art and choose happiness. As we go through life we wish for a model to go by. Why wish for something you can create yourself now

  Instagram
  Media Acrlic
  Size 18x24 inches

 

  As a Hispanic artist, I createdthis painting which is part of my 'Criticism of Hispanic Culture' to highlight some of the major issues in our community.

          Inguz

     Entry #9
  Artist Jaime Holland
  Media  Unused cabinet door, old jewelry beads, nails, random pieces of hardware found in the garage of my new home
  Size


I am an amateur artist who likes to create new mixed media art out of old things. I call them peaces of the past. This piece is called Inguz, which is the “rune of isolation or separation in order to create a space or place where the process of transformation into higher states of being can occur. The meaning of Inguz is found here www.runesecrets.org I created this during the stay at home orders of COVID-19 from old nails and hardware and pieces of jewelry that the previous owner left in my home

  Artist Jailyne España
 Instagram 
  Media  Acrylic on canvas, paper, modeling clay,
paper clips, and a wooden stick
  Size 20x20 inches



  This painting is part of my “Cancer” series. During my cancer treatment chemotherapy wore me down not only physically but mentally as well. The heavy amount of medicine and drugs I was given made me lose my sense of reality; I couldn’t differentiate what was real and what was not anymore. Cancer treatment wore me down to the bone.

          Frida

     Entry #12
  Artist Arturo Sarte
  Media Acrylic on wood frame canvas
  Size 35x36x1.5 inches
Watch the painting

  After completing this portrait, I felt incredibly privileged and honored to have been able to paint it. Frida is special to me for many reasons; I admire the enormous courage that she faced life with and the patriotism that characterized her. It is painted on a “spontaneous realism” style, which I have been practicing for a year now.

   Three Peppers

     Entry #13
  Artist Laura Barwick

  Media Acrylic on canvas pane
  Size 16x20 inches

  

 
  This is an acrylic still life piece, one that was originally the final assignment for my first painting class in college. I set up the reference myself and was quite proud of the end result, so much that I began to work on still life works more and more, which I had not been truly interested in until the assignment. To me, this work is a symbol of how artists grow and change as they experiment with technique and subject in their work, and I’m happy to display it in this gallery

 Treasured Memories

     Entry #16
  Artist Sweety Saradha
  Media  Acrylic and oil paints
  Size 18x24 inches


This painting captures one of my most beautiful memories from the year 2012. It was the day when I got to know that I was expecting a baby. I was overwhelmed with joy. That afternoon a male and a female Mallard Duck along with their 5 ducklings came to my backyard and they started pecking on my patio glass door. They lived in the pond behind my house and I used to feed them on a regular basis. To my surprise, on that day, it was the first time they got their babies along with them and just seeing those ducklings melted my heart. I was left speechless seeing these beautiful miracles and because of my heightened emotions it brought tears in eyes

    Serenity

     Entry #19
  Artist Jadalyn Triplett
  Media Acrylic
  Size 11”x14”

  

 
My inspiration for this piece was the serenity felt after a stressful day. Experiencing the relaxing effect of nature was something I wanted to embody in my artwork. Nature is where I picture myself when I feel chaotic and unbalanced. The cherry blossom tree reminds me of a balanced force that draws from the stream. However, the waterfall is chaotic but transforms into a peaceful stream that gives life. I hoped to represent the how nature can be relaxing while also displaying its own chaotic moments.

How am I being Judged? Each Judge will choose their favorite entry.  If all of the Judges choose the same entry then the winner will get the entire cash prize.  The number of entries is posted at the top of the page as 'Count'.  If the judges choose different entries then the cash prize will be divided based on the votes.  If 2 Judges agree on the same entry as their favorite, and 1 Judge chooses a different entry, and another Judge choose a different entry from every other Judge, then the prize will be divided so that the entry with 2 votes will get 2/5 of the cash prize and the 2 other artists will each receive 1/5 of the cash prize. The same formula will be used for every possible outcome of choices. There are 5 judges this year.

Can I be a Judge?   If you would like to apply to become a Judge next year please send me your credentials/resume/Artist Statement to my email:  whitney@whitneyartllc.com

What about Honorable Mentions?  Honorable mentions are awarded for outstanding art that has as much merit as the winner.

What if I don't win? There is always risk involved. Every Artist that submits an entry will be invited to display their artwork in our virtual gallery and/or links to their own web pages and sites.  Everyone that submits an entry fee will receive a certificate of participation. Best of all and worth it by itself is having your work judged by the professionals listed this year on the main contest page.
