The painting you see won "Second Best in Show" at the First National Juried Show for the Southern Appalachian Artist Guild in Blue Ridge, GA this month.
The show was juried and judged for awards by a nationally known artist and judge, Alan Flattmann of New Orleans, LA. There were about 450 entries from 23 states. The art pieces accepted represented 19 states and were both three-dimensional and two-dimensional. There were 80 2-D and about 36 3D in the show which is still being exhibited in the Historic Fannin County Courthouse in the Richard Lowe Evans Gallery. The show opening and award reception was well attended.
I was very excited about being accepted into the show, much less being an award winner. There were many exceptional pieces of art in this show. If you are in the Blue Ridge, GA area before Nov. 14 be sure to stop in and see this awesome show!
