I wasn't able to attend the 28th Annual Northern National Art Competition this year, but I was able to win the Contributor Award in the show. My roasted marshmallow painting never seizes to amaze me - this is the second award it's won this year!
The Northern National Art Competition is always a great show and a fantastic opportunity for artists to show their work. Its a large national show with diverse art and $8,500 in awards. If you missed it this year, mark your calendar for 2016. Here is their website, Nicolet Art Gallery.
I stumbled upon an image of my painting with a ribbon on a blog called Young Space. Young Space is an experimental, alternative platform for exhibiting, sharing, and talking about contemporary art, with an emphasis on young and emerging artists.
