Our Gallery and website will be showcasing the 252 (out of over 1000 entries) pieces of art that were juried and deemed worthy of being exhibited and there will also be an Awards Ceremony at 8:00 pm. In addition to seeing this wonderful art on the walls you’ll be able to view some of the work that couldn’t travel to Los Angeles on our plasma screen.
Our over 100 accepted artists and award winners are from around the world: From Los Angeles to California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Massachuttes, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin to the United Kingdom, South Korea, Poland, Philippines, Mexico, Japan, Italy, France, Canada, Australia.
Our Show Chair, Miriam “Mimi” King and our panel of judges, Calef Brown, Jorge Colombo, Georganne Deen, Richard Downs, Ann Field, Mimi Pond, Melanie Reim, Owen Smith (who also did the artwork for the poster) and Victoria Ying all worked very hard to come up with this wonderful show from so many talented artists.
We thank our Competition Sponsor, Directory of Illustration for their great assistance in contacting artists all around the world and now that the show and website are opening, we extend our deep felt thanks to our Exhibition Sponsors:
See you at the opening or “on” the website!
