Folks, I am positively thrilled to have had one of my works selected for this show. I know of two other artists, (whose work I greatly admire) who also were selected for the exhibition, Cintia Rico and Aimi Dunn.
There were over 220 submissions from Houston and surrounding areas. About 80 of those were selected by the Judge, Mr Patrick Palmer. Mr. Palmer's work is featured on the postcard image above. Following is his artist's statement:
Patrick Palmer was born, raised and educated in California, and is influenced greatly by the figurative influence that was so Prevalent in his education. Currently Patrick teaches Figure Painting and Figure Drawing at The Glassell School of Art. As a teacher his message is clear, artwork is meant to say something: engage a viewer, tell a story and convey a message. Patrick’s artworks are in many private and public collections, among them being The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
