Positive Art That Lifts The Spirit
My painting, "Winds of Fate" is in an online exhibit entitled "Positive Art That Lifts The Spirit." The link is www.manhattanarts.com/Gallery/Healing-Power-of-ART/Winners.htm
The exhibit is available for viewing through June 30, 2012. Artists were invited to submit images of their art in all styles and media that fit the theme “Positive Art That Lifts The Spirit.” Artists from 24 countries submitted their entries.
The three jurors for this competition included: Renée Phillips, author, curator and director of Manhattan Arts International; Nancy Reyner, artist, author and instructor; and Edward Rubin, arts writer, curator and artist. After a comprehensive review of more than 800 images, the jurors selected 44 outstanding artists’ images in a range of styles and media.
About this exhibition Renée Phillips states, “We believe in the healing power of art, not only for the artists during the creative process, but also for viewers. This exhibition of positive images offers viewers the opportunity to experience a powerful transformation. As a juror, I looked for those images that impacted me viscerally in a positive manner, as well as those that showed technical prowess and originality. Winning images range from realism to abstraction, from bold geometrics and colorful humor to breathtaking vistas. The diversity of expression in the exhibition is one of its best features.”
Phillips adds, “We are delighted to promote these 44 exceptional artists and give them exposure to an international audience of art professionals and art enthusiasts.
Hope you enjoy the exhibit.
