For this competition we asked artists to show their best Urban Landscapes. They were encouraged to share their artistic vision and interpretation of the cities around them. The artwork submitted varied from realism to surrealism to abstraction, and all media were accepted, including 3-D. All artists over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best inspired work. We received entries from artists residing in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, Australia, Germany and Italy.
Each of our themed exhibitions, awards for First, Second and Third Place. The First Place winner for the 3rd Urban Landscapes show is Allan Gorman for his oil on canvas, Crown. Allan’s painting has elements of a strong design, such as simplicity, and the use of leading lines to guide the viewer’s eye. Allan is also the Featured Artist for the next four weeks.
Taking Second Place is Sadie Roy for Fire Escape. Sadie’s dramatic use of black and white photography support the mood of the subject, and her unique point of view and composition make this a stand out image. And, Third Place goes to Sam Lacombe for his oil, LA Vista. Sam’s effective is the use of color and contrast enhance the overall mood and visual impact of the image.
Honorable Mention awards were given as well. Honorable Mention awards go to Karl Bibler for his photo, Schaumburg, Illinois #1, Celeste Christie for her Untitled piece, Sandra Dalton for her photo, Popcorn, Brandi Foster for her photo, Downtown Baltimore, Cheryl Kramer for her oil, Looking Up, Irena Roman for her transparent watercolor, Irving’s, Toni Silver-Delerive for her acrylic, NY Water Tanks, and Steven Watkins for his acrylic, London Heat.
