Best in Show - Mixed Media Award
The mixed media assemblage titled The Good Book has been awarded the Best in Show award for mixed media at the Sooke Fine Arts Show. I won a similar award in 1999, the last time I submitted to this particular exhibition. I submitted 2 encaustic pieces in 1999 along with a straight oil painting. The oil won an award, the encaustic pieces were accepted but went unnoticed. Times have changed! By selecting Jurors with a wider vision Sooke has taken the exhibition up a few notches. The Jurors, Jeffrey Spalding, Dianne Ferris and John Luna are all highly respected figures in the art world. I'm looking forward to the exhibition, wondering how the work will look in this context.
