Check Out These Beauties

Every time I get on Artist Daily I am a little bowled over by the strides and accomplishments we all are making in our art. I get the same feeling when I look at the winners of the Utrecht 3rd Annual Art Competition, whose winners were just announced.

The artists in each of the contest categories–sculpture, painting, and drawing–produced work that really shows how alive and well art-making is! I was glad to see so many diverse points of view and the care and craftsmanship of every piece attests to how committed the artists are. The competition was juried by renowned artist and portraitist Nelson Shanks, founder Studio Incamminati; Joe Gyurcsak, the artist in residence and Brand Manager of Utrecht Art Supplies; and our very own Michael Gormley, the editorial director of American Artist magazine.

I've put up the Utrecht Competition 2011 Gallery, where you can take a look at all the winning entries, read the artists' statements about their work, and lend your support to your fellow artists by leaving a comment about each work. I know they'd love to hear from you. Congrats to all. Enjoy!
